Self-passivating Metal Alloys with Reduced Thermo-oxidation (SMART) are under development for the primary application as plasma-facing materials of the first wall in a fusion DEMOnstration power plant (DEMO). SMART materials must combine the suppressed oxidation in case of an accident and an acceptable plasma performance during the regular operatio…

Methods for density control are of critical importance for future long pulse tokamaks. The EMC3-EIRENE code is being used to investigate the applicability of 3D non-axisymmetric fields for density control in standard and advanced divertor configurations in spherical tokamaks. Part of this effort is understanding Scrape Off layer (SOL) transport mec…

The dynamics and stability of divertor detachment in N2 seeded, type-I, ELMy H-mode plasmas with dominant NBI heating in the JET-ILW device is studied by means of an integrated analysis of diagnostic data from several systems, classifying data relative to the ELM times. It is thereby possible to study the response of the detachment evolution to the…

A detailed experiment-theory comparison reveals that linear ideal MHD theory is in quantitative agreement with external magnetic and internal soft x-ray measurements of the plasma response to externally applied non-axisymmetric fields over a broad range of beta and rotation. This result represents a significant step toward the goal of advancing the…

Recent experiments show the impact of Resonant Magnetic Perturbations on the density [O Schmitz et al Plasma Phys. Control. Fusion 50 124029 (2008); T E Evans et al Nucl. Fusion 48 024002 (2008); A Kirk et al Nucl. Fusion 50 024002 (2008); Y Liang et al Phys. Rev. Lett. 98 265004 (2007)], leading to a so-called density pump-out. Previous comparison…

Local values of the electron density and temperature in the edge of a fusion plasma can be derived with high space and time resolution by the use of line radiation of atomic helium beams. The accuracy of this method is mainly limited by the uncertainties in the coUisional-radiative model which is needed in order to obtain both plasma parameters fro…
