23rd International Conference on Plasma Surface Interactions in Controlled Fusion Devices (PSI), Princeton, NJ, USA, 17-22 June 2018

Reducing the plasma power exhaust impacting on plasma facing components during steady state operation is one of the major design issues in future tokamaks such as ITER. Impurity seeding, e.g. with N, is one method of achieving this and has been used for a long time in tokamak research [1]. In this work we exploit a recently developed spectroscopic …

27th IAEA Fusion Energy Conference, Ahmedabad, India, 22-27 October 2018

Recent results from MAST address key physics issues for ITER operations and the design of future devices, by advancing our understanding of through analysis of high-resolution data and numerical modelling. Modelling of the interaction between filaments with BOUT++ indicates filaments separated by more than 5x their width move independently, and …
