A theoretical study of macroscopic wave activity in H-1 plasmas
A rich low-frequency wave phenomenology has been observed in plasmas generated on the H-1 heliac. A significant proportion of these fluctuations show Alfvenic characteristics. The strongly shaped magnetic geometry of H-1 presents a major obstacle to theoretical modelling of macroscopic wave physics, even under the simplifying assumptions of ideal MHD. An additional obstacle has been the dearth of literature on low-frequency Alfvenic oscillations in fusion plasmas in general, and stellarator...[Show more]
