The Gyrokinetic Toroidal Code (GTC) has been used to study Toroidal Alfven Eigenmodes (TAEs) in high-performance plasmas. Experiments performed at the Joint European Torus, where TAEs were driven by energetic particles arising from Neutral Beams, ion cyclotron resonant heating and resonantly excited by dedicated external antennas, have been simu…

A system based on a LaBr 3 (Ce) scintillator and digital data acquisition is discussed in view of γ-ray spectroscopy measurements on a fusion burning plasma. High energy resolution and high rate capability of the system are demonstrated in laboratory tests and in dedicated experiments at nuclear accelerators. Preliminary results on sensitivity of …

Intensities and detailed spectral shapes of γ-ray emission peaks were successfully reproduced using a physics model combining the kinetics of the reacting ions with a detailed description of the nuclear reaction differential cross sections for populating the L1-L8 14 N excitation levels yielding the observed γ-ray emission. The results provide a …

On the Joint European Torus ( JET ) , a key source of calibrated electron temperature T e profiles is from the measurements of the full electron cyclotron emission ( ECE ) spectrum made by a Fourier transform spectrometer ( FTS ) . It is absolutely calibrated by using a calibration source inside the vacuum vessel. High spatial and temporal resoluti…
