ABSTRACT
A magnetic diagnostics allowing one to reliably reconstruct equilibrium plasma configurations in a tokamak over a wide range of operating parameters is developed. The accuracy of determining the geometrical parameters and thermal energy of the tokamak plasma is analyzed in detail. The experimental data obtained in the Globus-M tokamak are processed the with help of the EFIT code. The influence of the plasma configuration on the intensity of the main impurity lines is investigated.

    If quasiaxisymmetry is preserved, nonaxisymmetric shaping can be used to design tokamaks that do not require current drive, are resilient to disruptions, and have robust plasma stability without feedback. Suggestions for addressing the critical issues of tokamaks can only be validated when...

    Characteristics of a cloud ablated from an ice pellet has been investigated in detail in the JIPP T-IIU tokamak plasma by utilizing a new scheme of pellet injection system, "the injection-angle controllable system". A long "helical tail" of ablation light has been observed using CCD cameras and...

    For the future ITER tokamak (International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor) plasmas [R. Aymar et al., Nucl. Fusion 41, 1301 (2001)] a simple and robust theoretical model for the prediction of the dynamics of neoclassical tearing modes (NTM) is a crucial topic. Presently, this theory is...

    Configurations with nearby multiple resonant surfaces have broad spectra of linearly unstable coupled tearing modes with dominant high poloidal mode numbers m. This was recently shown for the case of multiple q=1 resonances [Bierwage et al., Phys. Rev. Lett. 94 65001 (2005)]. In the present...

    Compound sawteeth is studied with the XTOR-2F code. Non-linear full 3D magnetohydrodynamic simulations show that the plasma hot core is radially displaced and rotates during the partial crash, but is not fully expelled out of the q = 1 surface. Partial crashes occur when the radius of the q = 1...

    To determine the hydrogen isotope ratio in plasma from charge-exchange neutral fluxes, certain assumptions are traditionally adopted, the most restrictive of which concerns the form of the ion distribution function, which is usually assumed to be Maxwellian. For large tokamaks, however,...

    A review is given of the main ideas regarding self-organization of a tokamak plasma. The analysis begins with a simple model of canonical profiles that was proposed by Kadomtsev for a plasma column with a circular cross section. Kadomtsev�s model is then generalized to a tokamak plasma with...

    The features of the tearing mode dynamics in a tokamak that manifest themselves in an irregular mode rotation are demonstrated by using an algorithm for data processing that is based on the concept of the instantaneous frequency of an analytic signal. A model is developed in which the tearing...
