A new infrared Thomson scattering system has been designed for the MAST tokamak. The system will measure at 120 spatial points with 10 mm resolution across the plasma. Eight 30 Hz 1.6 J Nd:YAG lasers will be combined to produce a sampling rate of 240 Hz. The lasers will follow separate parallel beam paths to the MAST vessel. Scattered light will b…

A comparison is presented of measured and simulated parallel flows in the low field side scrape-off layer of MAST Ohmic shots. Simulations with B2SOLPS5.0 code reproduce the experimentally observed co-current rotation direction. The absolute values of the simulated Mach number are smaller than those of the measured ones; the difference might reach …
