Alfvén eigenmode (AE) instabilities driven by α-particles have been observed in D-3He fusion experiments on the Joint European Torus (JET) with the ITER-like wall [Kiptily et al, submitted to Phys. Rev. Letters, 2020]. The impact of these type instabilities on a burning plasma is of crucial relevance for the perfor…Preprint

Alfvén eigenmode (AE) instabilities driven by alpha-particles have been observed in D-3He fusion experiments on the Joint European Torus (JET) with the ITER-like wall (ILW). For the efficient generation of fusion alpha-particles from D-3He fusion reaction, the 3‑ion radio frequency (RF) scenario was used t…Preprint Published

Dedicated experiments to generate high-energy D ions and D-3He fusion-born alpha particles have been performed at the Joint European Torus (JET) with the ITER-like wall (ILW). Deuterium ions from neutral beam injection (NBI) with acceleration voltage of 100 keV were accelerated to higher energies in the core of mixed D-3He…Preprint Published

Results of simulations of the sawtooth-induced redistribution of fast ions in JET and ITER with the code OFSEF are presented. The dependence of the redistribution on the particle parameters (energy and pitch angle) is studied. The redistribution of the trapped and marginally passing particles is found to exhibit barrier-like behaviour at the separa…Preprint Published

Recent studies dedicated to the characterisation of in-vessel dust in JET with the new ITER-like wall (ILW) show that dust levels are orders of magnitude lower compared with the latter stages of the carbon-wall (CW) period and are decreasing with operational time. Less than 1 g of dust was recovered in a recent inspection, compared with more than 2…Preprint Published

JET equipped with ITER-like wall (a beryllium wall and a tungsten divertor) can provide auxiliary heating with power up to 35MW, producing a significant population of alpha-particles in DT operation. The direct measurements of alphas are very difficult and alpha-particle studies require a significant development of dedicated diagnostics. JET now ha…Published

One of the main approaches to thermonuclear fusion relies on confining high temperature plasmas with properly shaped magnetic fields. The determination of the magnetic topology is, therefore, essential for controlling the experiments and for achieving the required performance. In Tokamaks, the reconstruction of the fields is typically formulated as…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
