Core magnetic islands and plasma confinement in the H-1NF heliac

Kumar, Santhosh T. A.; Blackwell, Boyd D.; Howard, John; Harris, Jeffrey H.


Plasma confinement in the vicinity of vacuum magnetic islands near the magnetic axis in the H-1NF heliac [S. M. Hamberger et al., Fusion Technol.17, 123 (1990)] has been experimentally studied in a low temperature argon plasma. Experimental results indicate that, under favorable conditions, these low order (m=2)islands near the core of the plasma serve as “pockets” of higher electron density. This results in significant profile modifications including enhancement of the core radial electric...[Show more]
