30th Symposium on Fusion Technology (SOFT), Giardini Naxos, Messina, Sicily, 16-21 September 2018

The Chinese Fusion Engineering Test Reactor (CFETR) bridges the gap between ITER and a demonstration fusion power plant (DEMO). The primary objectives of CFETR are: demonstrate tritium self-sufficiency, ~1GW fusion power, operate in steady-state and have a duty cycle of 0.3-0.5 [1]. CFETR is in the pre-conceptual design phase and is currently envis…

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

The Doppler Backscattering (DBS) microwave diagnostic enables the non-perturbative characterisation of density fluctuations and flows, both at the edge and the core of the plasma. The large magnetic pitch angle (up to 35 degrees, compared to 15 degrees in standard tokamaks like JET) and the time-varying magnetic equilibrium make the use of DBS in s…

An edge resonant transport layer has been found to explain many aspects of fast-ion confinement under symmetry breaking 3D edge perturbations, such as edge localized modes (ELMs) and externally applied magnetic perturbations (MPs). Experimental measurements in the ASDEX Upgrade (AUG) tokamak show that fast-ion losses in the presence of symmetry bre…
