The H-mode pedestal characteristics on MAST are measured in a variety of Connected Double Null (CDN) and Single Null Divertor (SND) discharges. In CDN discharges the edge density pedestal width in spatial co-ordinates is similar on both the high and low field sides suggesting that the width may be determined by neutral penetration. However, in SND …

Recent advances in modeling the effects of anisotropic energetic ion distributions have enabled the development of a complete coherent physics explanation of sawtooth stabilization in both conventional and spherical tokamaks. As an example, a complete model has been developed to explain the asymmetric stabilization of sawteeth with respect to neutr…

A wide range of studies on JET have contributed greatly to the development of the ELMy H-mode as a high-performance scenario for fusion devices and to the understanding of the physical processes that underlie it. Development has focused on the production of a highperformance, high-density, stationary scenario suited to deuterium-tritium operation a…

Present day tokamaks are capable of generating toroidal flows approaching the ion sound speed. Such toroidal rotation is known to have a stabilising effect on resistive wall modes[1]. Here the effects of plasma rotation and diamagnetic drifts on the n = 1 internal kink mode and high n ballooning modes are presented with specific comparison to exper…
