22nd Topical Conference on High Temperature Plasma Diagnostics (HTPD), San Diego, USA, 16-19 April 2018

Since 2010, an in-vessel calibration light source (ICLS) has been used periodically on JET to calibrate a range of diagnostics at UV, visible and IR wavelengths. During shutdowns, the ICLS (essentially an integrating sphere) is positioned within the vacuum vessel by the remote handling (RH) system. Following the 201…

Dimensionless identity experiments test the invariance of plasma physics to changes in the dimensional plasma parameters, e.g. ne and Te, when the dimensionless parameters are conserved [1] [2]. However, conditions at the plasma boundary, such as influx of neutral particles, may introduce additional physics. An isotope identity experiment was ca…

In high-performance, ITER baseline-scenario pulses (3MA/2.7T) in JET-ILW with high levels (~ 32 MW) of heating power, typically ~ 20-40% of the input power is radiated, predominantly by W impurities, which are sputtered from the divertor targets and reach the confined plasma. Sustained ELMy H-mode operation at such high heating power in JET-ILW …

An understanding of the plasma edge and divertor is essential for predicting the performance of next-step machines such as ITER. Transport codes used to study the divertor behaviour [1] employ atomic physics data in two applications. The first is to predict the power radiated by the fuel and impurity atoms, which is carried out as a post-processing…

45th European Physical Society Conference on Plasma Physics (EPS), Prague, 2-6 July 2018

Empirically-based power-balance calculations of the inter-ELM separatrix loss power are presented for JET pulses with both the carbon- (JET-C) and ITER-like (JET-ILW) walls, to facilitate comparisons with results of on-going, non-linear gyro-kinetic calculations of pedestal heat transport, e.g. as reported in [1]. These might be able to explain the…
