It is well known that when neutral beams inject ions into trapped orbits in a tokamak, the transfer of momentum between the beam and the plasma occurs through the torque exerted by a radial return current. It is shown that this implies that the angular momentum transferred to the plasma can be larger than the angular momentum of the beam, if the in…

This article is dedicated to the characterization of turbulent transport in the scrape-off layer of the Mega Ampere Spherical Tokamak [A. Sykes and et al. , Phys. Plasmas 8 , 2101 (2001)] as a function of the average density n L . The aim is to answer a renewed interest in this subject since the bursty character of turbulence in the scrape-off laye…

Recently, it was shown that intermittency observed in magnetic fusion devices is caused by large-scales events with high radial velocity reaching about 1/10th of the sound speed s called avaloids or blobs [G. Antar and et al. , Phys. Rev. Lett. 87 065001 (2001)]. In the present paper, the poloidal distribution of turbulence is investigated on the M…

The nature of intermittency, long observed in magnetic fusion devices, was revisited lately [G. Antar et al. , Phys. Rev. Lett. 87 , 065001 (2001)]. It was shown that intermittency is caused by large-scale events with high radial velocity reaching about 1/10th of the sound speed. These type of structures were named ‘‘avaloids.’’ In the pres…
