Dedicated experiments to generate high-energy D ions and D-3He fusion-born alpha particles have been performed at the Joint European Torus (JET) with the ITER-like wall (ILW). Deuterium ions from neutral beam injection (NBI) with acceleration voltage of 100 keV were accelerated to higher energies in the core of mixed D-3He…

A study of mixed hydrogen-deuterium H-mode plasmas has been carried out in JET-ILW to strengthen the physics basis for extrapolations to JET D-T operation and to support the development of strategies for isotope ratio control in future experiments. Variations of input power, gas fuelling and isotopic mixture were performed in H-mode plasmas of the…

NBI-heated L-mode plasmas have been obtained in JET with the Be/W ITER-like wall (JET-ILW) in H and D, with matched profiles of the dimensionless plasma parameters in the plasma core confinement region and same Ti/Te and Zeff. The achieved isotope identity indicates that the confinement scale invariance principle is satisfied in the core confine…

The pedestal structure, ELM losses and linear MHD stability are analysed in a series of JET-ILW H and D type I ELMy H-mode plasmas. The pedestal pressure (pPED) is typically higher in D than in H at the same input power, with the difference mainly due to lower density in H than in D. At the same input power, the pedestal electron pressur…

Deuterium pellets are injected into initially pure hydrogen H-mode plasma in order to control H:D isotope mixture. The pellets are deposited in outer 20% of minor radius, similar to that expected in ITER creating transiently hollow electron density profiles. The isotope mixture of H:D ~ 45:55% is obtained in the core with pellet fuelling throughput…

This paper outlines an approach towards improved rigour in tokamak turbulence transport model validation within integrated modelling. Gaussian process regression (GPR) techniques were applied for profile fitting during the preparation of integrated modelling simulations. This allows for rigourous sensitivity tests of prescribed initial and bound…

Quantitative comparisons are presented between gyrokinetic simulations and experimental values of the carbon impurity peaking factor in a database of JET H-modes during the carbon wall era. These plasmas feature strong NBI heating, hence high values of toroidal rotation and correponding gradient. Furthermore, the carbon profiles present particularl…

After the first high power D-T experiment in JET in 1997 (DTE1), when JET was equipped with Carbon PFC’s, a proposed second high power (up to ~40MW) D-T campaign (DTE2) in the current Be/W vessel will address essential operational, technical, diagnostics and scientific issues in support of ITER. These experiments are proposed to minimize the risk…

This paper presents an overview of the state of the art of core transport studies in JET. It covers in various sections the topics of heat transport, particle and impurity transport, momentum transport, internal transport barrier physics and integrated core and edge modeling. For each topic, a brief summary of older results obtained under the JET J…

This paper presents a feasibility study for a motional Stark effect ( MSE ) [ F. M. Levinton et al. , Phys. Rev. Lett. 63 , 2060 ( 1989 )] diagnostic on the TCV tokamak. A numerical simulation code has been used to identify the optimal port arrangement and geometrical layout. It predicts the expected measurement accuracy for a range of typical plas…
