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…

Elliptical AE (EAE) and TAE mode instabilities have been observed in hydrogen-rich (nH/(nH+nD)~70-90% JET discharges of so-called “three-ion scenario”, i.e. D-(3He)-H three ion ICRH scenario [1], which is characterized by strong absorption of radio frequency waves a…

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…
