Ray-tracing techniques are applied to divertor filtered imaging, a diagnostic that has long been plagued by polluting reflected light features in metal walled fusion machines. A physically realistic surface reflection model is developed from a Cook-Torrence microfacet BRDF model. Camera calibration images of in-vessel point lights at JET are use…

Following the lead of [Nguyen Van Yen Nucl. Fus. 52 (2012) 013005 (11pp)], this article tackles the problem of tomographic inversion with one camera assuming a constant emissivity of light along the magnetic field lines. In this way, the 3D problem reduces to 2D by helical symmetry, allowing for the reconstruction of any poloidal plane in the …

Application of lower hybrid (LH) current drive in tokamak plasmas can induce both co- and countercurrent directed changes in toroidal rotation, depending on the core q profile. For discharges with q0 < 1, rotation increments in the countercurrent direction are observed. If the LH-driven current is sufficient to suppress sawteeth and increase q0 abo…

The behaviour of the turbulence in magnetic fusion plasmas is discussed in the framework of dimensional analysis. Three main dimensionless parameters are identified, which directly affect the adiabatic response of the plasma and hence control the electron response. They were originally introduced by Scott [B. Scott, Plasma Phys Control. Fusion, 39,…
