Particle transport is of a great importance for understanding physics of tokamak plasmas and planning future experiments on larger machines such as ITER. The subject was intensively studied in the past, particularly in relation to density peaking and presence of anomalous inward particle convection in L- and H-mode. While in the L-mode case presenc…

In Ion-Temperature-Gradient (ITG) driven turbulence, the resonance condition leads to ion particle turbulent transport coefficients significantly larger than electron particle turbulent transport coefficients. This is shown in non-linear gyrokinetic simulations and explained by an analytical quasilinear model. It is then illustrated by JETTO-QuaLi…

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…

The Joint European Torus (JET) high resolution Thomson scattering (HRTS) system measures radial electron temperature and density profiles. One of the key capabilities of this diagnostic is measuring the steep pressure gradient, termed the pedestal, at the edge of JET plasmas. The pedestal is susceptible to limiting instabilities, such as Edge Local…

This work isolated the cause of the observed discrepancy between the electron temperature (Te) measurements before and after the JET Core LIDAR Thomson Scattering (TS) diagnostic was upgraded. In the upgrade process, stray light filters positioned just before the detectors were removed from the system. Modelling showed that the shift imposed on the…

The LIDAR Thomson scattering concept was proposed in 1983 and then implemented for the first time on the JET tokamak in 1987. A number of modifications were performed and published in 1995, but since then no major changes were made for almost 15 years. In 2010 a refurbishment of the diagnostic was started, with as main goals to improve its performa…
