Recent progress of magnetic reconnection research in the MAST spherical tokamak

Tanabe, H.; Yamada, T.; Watanabe, T.; Gi, K.; Inomoto, M.; Imazawa, R.; Gryaznevich, M.; Michael, Clive; Crowley, B.; Conway, N. J.; Scannell, R.; Harrison, J.; Fitzgerald, I.; Meakins, A.; Hawkes, N.; McClements, K. G.; O'Gorman, T.; Cheng, C. Z.; Ono, Y.


In the last three years, magnetic reconnection research in the MAST spherical tokamak achieved major progress by the use of new 32 chord ion Doppler tomography and 130 channel YAG and 300 channel Ruby Thomson scattering diagnostics. In addition to the previously achieved high power plasma heating during merging, detailed full temperature profile measurements including the diffusion region have been achieved for the first time. 2D imaging measurements of ion and electron temperature...[Show more]
