Measurements of the edge current evolution and comparison with neoclassical calculations during MAST H-modes using motional Stark effect
Edge localized modes (ELMs), that are present in most tokamak H- (high confinement) modes, can cause significant damage to plasma facing components in fusion reactors. Controlling ELMs is considered necessary and hence it is vital to understand the underlying physics. The stability of ELMs is typically expressed in terms of the pressure gradient ∇p in the edge and the edge current density j φ. Both ∇p and j φ are usually derived from profiles fitted to the measured edge density and temperature...[Show more]
