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 …

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…

Asymmetrical disruptions may occur during ITER operation and they may be accompanied by large sideways forces and rotation of the asymmetry. This is of particular concern because resonance of the rotating asymmetry with the natural frequencies of the vacuum vessel (and other in-vessel components) could lead to large dynamic amplification of the for…

The core Thomson scattering diagnostic (TS) on the COMPASS tokamak was put in operation and reported earlier. Implementation of edge TS, with spatial resolution along the laser beam up to~1/100 of the tokamak minor radius, is presented now. The procedure for spatial calibration and alignment of both core and edge systems is described. Several furth…

A new Thomson scattering diagnostic system has been designed and is being built now on the COMPASS tokamak at the Institute of Plasma Physics ASCR in Prague IPP Prague in the Czech Republic. This contribution focuses on design, development, and installation of the light collection and detection system. High spatial resolution of 3 mm will be achiev…
