    A number of alpha-particle diagnostics were initiated successfully during the TFTR DT phase. These diagnostics were prototypical and were not able to operate under all conditions. Had TFTR continued to operate, the deficiencies should have been corrected. Effects of radiation on fiberoptics and...

    A comment on effects of neutral beam injection on poloidal rotation and energy transport in tokamaks plasma is presented. The enhanced neoclassical effects such as poloidal mass flow, viscous heating and the convective flow of main plasma ions which is inward for coinjection should be taken into...
