This paper provides an overview of the status of the laser diagnostics to be implemented on ITER. This includes descriptions of the Thomson scattering in the Core, Edge and Divertor regions, polarimetry and interferometry diagnostics used for measuring plasma density and also measurements of Helium density in the divertor using Laser Induced Flo…Preprint

Understanding the impact of the synergistic effects on fast ion distribution function (DF) is essential for maximising the fusion rates in magnetic confinement fusion plasma. Because fusion reactions such as D-D, D-3He, D-T etc. have different energy dependencies, tailoring the energies of the fast ions to predetermined values optimal for fusion…Preprint Published

The evolution of the JET high performance hybrid scenario, including central accumulation of the tungsten (W) impurity, is reproduced with predictive multi-channel integrated modelling over multiple confinement times using first-principle based models. 8 transport channels are modelled predictively, with self-consistent sources, radiation and magne…Preprint Published

13MW of electron cyclotron current drive (ECCD) power deposited inside the q = 1 surface is likely to reduce the sawtooth period in ITER baseline scenario below the level empirically predicted to trigger neo-classical tearing modes (NTMs). However, since the ECCD control scheme is solely predicated upon changing the local magnetic shear, it is prud…Published

The neutron field parameters (fluence and energy distribution) at a specific location outside the JET Torus Hall have been measured by means of super-heated fluid detectors (or “bubble detectors”) in combination with an independent, time-of-flight, technique. The bubble detector assemblies were placed at the end of a vertical line of sight at a…Published

The constructive interference effect described by Fuchs et al.  shows that the mode conversion and thereby the overall heating efficiency can be enhanced significantly when an integer number of fast wave wavelengths can be folded in between the high field side fast wave cutoff and the ion-ion hybrid layer(s) at which the ion Bernstein or ion cyc…Published

New transport experiments on JET indicate that ion stiffness mitigation in the core of a rotating plasma, as described by Mantica et al. [ Phys. Rev. Lett. 102, 175002 (2009) ] results from the combined effect of high rotational shear and low magnetic shear. The observations have important implications for the understanding of improved ion core con…Published

Numerical modelling of the effects of ion cyclotron resonance heating (ICRH) on the stability of the internal kink mode suggests that ICRH should be considered as an essential sawtooth control tool in ITER. Sawtooth control using ICRH is achieved by directly affecting the energy of the internal kink mode rather than through modification of the magn…Published

The non-active operation phase of ITER will be done in H|4 He plasmas at half the nominal magnetic field, B 0 =2.65T. At this field|for the given frequency range of the ICRF system (f=40-55MHz), three ICRF heating scenarios are available a priori : (i) Fundamental ICRH of majority H plasmas at f?40MHz, (ii) second harmonic (N=2) 3 He ICRH in H plas…Published
