This work presents the first evidence of helical flow in RFX-mod q(a) < 2 tokamak plasmas. The flow pattern is characterized by the presence of convective cells with m = 1 and n = 1 periodicity in the poloidal and toroidal direction, respectively. A similar helical flow deformation has been observed in the same device when operatedfas a Reversed…

Impurity transport is an important topic for ITER as impurity density in tlie core has to stay below a relative concentration of 5 x 10~^ [1] to reach ignition conditions. The reasons for that is mainly impurity radiation leading to cooling. In the edge region on the other hand site, higher impurity densities, going along with radiation energy loss…
