Partial detachment is the desired regime for the baseline burning plasma scenario in ITER and next-step devices, as it allows to disspate the majority of the energy carried by charged particles through the scrape-off-layer (SOL) and thus avoids localised heat flux deposition in the divertor region. The COMPASS tokamak is equipped with an open diver…

It has been shown on several tokamaks that application of a Resonant Magnetic Perturbation (RMP) eld on plasma can under certain conditions lead to suppression or mitigation of Edge-Localized Mode (ELM) instabilities. Due to the rotation of the plasma in the RMP eld reference system, currents are induced on resonant surfaces within the plasma, co…

The ball pen probe (BPP) technique is used successfully to make profile measurements of plasma potential, electron temperature, and radial electric field on the Mega Amp Spherical Tokamak. The potential profile measured by the BPP is shown to significantly differ from the floating potential both in polarity and profile shape. By combining the BPP p…
