Neo-classical tokamak plasma theory predicts poloidal rotation driven by the temperature gradient of order ~ few km/s. In conventional aspect ratio tokamak plasmas, e.g. on JET and DIII-D, poloidal velocities considerably in excess of the neo-classical values have been measured, particularly in the presence of internal transport barriers (ITBs), by…


A major upgrade to the charge exchange recombination spectroscopy system on MAST has recently been implemented. The new system consists of a high-throughput spectrometer coupled to a total of 224 spatial channels, including toroidal and poloidal views of both neutral heating beams on MAST. Radial resolution is 1 cm, comparable to the ion Larmor rad…
