    The goal of the Lower Hybrid Current Drive (LHCD) system on the Alcator C-Mod tokamak [Hutchinson et al., Phys. Plasmas 1, 1511 (1994)] is to investigate current profile control under plasma conditions relevant to future tokamak experiments. Experimental observations of a LHCD “density...

    Detaching plasma blobs with very similar properties to tokamaks are observed in the basic toroidal plasma experiment TORPEX [A. Fasoli et al., Phys. Plasmas 13, 055902 (2006)]. The blobs originate from the breaking of wave crests of a drift-interchange wave, which span over regions characterized...

    The equilibrium configurations with central current density reversal and those with two oppositely flowing current components on the high-field side and low-field side have been numerically modeled by using the exact solution of the Grad-Shafranov-Helmholtz equation, with the parameters chosen...

    Experimental observations of LHCD at high density (ne>1020m∼3) on the Alcator C-Mod tokamak are presented in this paper. Bremsstrahlung emission from relativistic fast electrons in the core plasma drops sharply in single null discharges well below the density limit previously observed on...

    The use of magnetic coordinates is ubiquitous in toroidal plasma physics but the distortion in Fourier spectra produced by these coordinates is not well known. A spatial symmetry of the field is not always represented by a symmetry in the Fourier spectrum when magnetic coordinates are used...

    In this paper, equations for calculation of the self and mutual inductances of the Modular Toroidal Coil (MTC) applicable to Tokamak reactors are presented. The MTC is composed of several solenoidal coils (SCs) connected in series and distributed in the toroidal and the symmetrical form. These...

    A 3-D code has been developed in order to simulate the magnetic field lines in circular cross-section tokamaks. The toroidal magnetic field can be obtained from the individual fields of circular coils arranged around the torus, or alternatively, as a ripple-less field. The poloidal field is...

    Experimental evidence was found in JET plasmas of a new instability at the onset of minor disruptions. This instability is observed during the growth of the well known m/n = 2/1 magnetic island and is localized close to it, behaving as a secondary instability to the island. The large heat fluxes...
