In this paper, current profiles for plasma discharges on the Mega-Ampere
Spherical Tokamak (MAST) are directly calculated from pickup coil, flux loop
and Motional-Stark Effect (MSE) observations via methods based in the
statistical theory of Bayesian analysis. By representing toroidal plasma
current as a series of axisymmetric current beams with rectangular
cross-section and inferring the current for each one of these beams,
flux-surface geometry and q-profiles are subsequently calculated...[Show more]
