A survey of the correlation between temperature and density gradient lengths ( and ) has been performed for the near SOL regions in the ASDEX Upgrade tokamak. In common with previous studies, the near SOL temperature and density gradient length ratio, , is found to be close to unity across a wide range of plasmas. However, it is found that it is po…

The complete refuelling of the plasma density loss (pump-out) caused by mitigation of Edge Localised Modes (ELMs) is demonstrated on the ASDEX Upgrade tokamak. The plasma is refuelled by injection of frozen deuterium pellets and ELMs are mitigated by external resonant magnetic perturbations (RMPs). In this experiment relevant dimensionless paramete…
