24th International Conference on Plasma Surface Interactions in Controlled Fusion Devices (PSI), South Korea, 24 - 29 January 2021

One of the issues faced by future fusion devices will be high target heat loads. Alternative divertors are a potential solution to the heat loads. They have been investigated in TCV and DIII-D, and will be investigated on MAST-U. To evaluate their effectiveness, accurate target heat flux and power balance measurements are required in these machines…

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

In the present work, global, three-dimensional edge plasma turbulence simulations of a MAST L-mode attached plasma discharge are presented. Our study is based on the drift-reduced Braginskii equations, solved with the STORM module of BOUT++ for realistic MAST parameters in disconnected lower double null configuration. The plasma profiles are evolve…

Edge Localised Modes (ELMs) in H-mode tokamak plasmas may be controlled or entirely suppressed by applying 3D magnetic perturbations (MPs). The applied perturbation is amplified by the plasma response, and it has previously been established that the size of the peeling component of this response is a reliable indicator for expected ELM control on A…

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

The design and unique feature of the first MAST-U fast-ion loss detector (FILD) [M. Garcia-Muñoz, Rev. Sci. Instrum 80, 053503 (2009)] is presented here. The MAST-U FILD head is mounted on an axially and angularly actuated mechanism that makes…
