Detailed 2D measurements of long-wavelength density fluctuations in the pedestal region with beam emission spectroscopy during the period between edge localized modes (ELMs) indicate two distinct bands of fluctuations propagating in opposite poloidal directions in the plasma frame: one lower frequency band (50–150 kHz) advects in the ion-diamagne…

Neutral beam injection into reversed magnetic shear DIII-D and ASDEX Upgrade plasmas produces a variety of Alfvénic activity including toroidicity-induced Alfvén eigenmodes and reversed shear Alfvén eigenmodes (RSAEs). These modes are studied during the discharge current ramp phase when incomplete current penetration results in a high central sa…

Recent experiments show the impact of Resonant Magnetic Perturbations on the density [O Schmitz et al Plasma Phys. Control. Fusion 50 124029 (2008); T E Evans et al Nucl. Fusion 48 024002 (2008); A Kirk et al Nucl. Fusion 50 024002 (2008); Y Liang et al Phys. Rev. Lett. 98 265004 (2007)], leading to a so-called density pump-out. Previous comparison…

Reversed shear Alfvén eigenmodes RSAE that were observed in the Joint European Torus (JET) [P. H. Rebut and B. E. Keen, Fusion Technol. 11 , 13 (1987)] and DIII-D [J. L. Luxon, Nucl. Fusion 42 , 614 (2002)] are studied with the ideal magnetohydrodynamic code NOVA-K C. [Z. Cheng, Phys. Rep. 211 , 1 (1992)]. It was found that the frequency behavior …
