46th European Physical Society Conference on Plasma Physics (EPS), Milan, 8-12 July 2019

In magnetic confinement devices, boundary turbulence is responsible for transporting plasma and energy from the well-confined region towards the material surfaces where it can severely harm reactor relevant machines. It is therefore essential to develop a solid understanding of the mechanisms behind the transport in the edge of the plasma. Large fl…

In the present magnetically confined plasmas, the prediction of particle loading on material surfaces is a primary concern in view of the protection of plasma facing components for next step devices. Thus, an understanding of filament dynamics is needed. In this context, this work aims to develop an automatic detector for filaments arising in the M…

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 …
