Experimental Studies of Magnetic Islands, Configurations and Plasma Confinement in the H-1NF Heliac

Kumar, Santhosh Tekke Athayil


Rational magnetic flux surfaces in fusion (toroidal plasma confinement) devices can break the magnetic field lines and reconnect them in the form of magnetic islands. Formation of these magnetic islands can have a serious impact on the plasma confinement properties of the device. Islands can in general degrade the confinement by mixing up different regions of the plasma. However there has been experimental evidence of confinement improvement by island induced transport barriers, under certain...[Show more]
