The application of non-axisymmetric resonant magnetic perturbations (RMPs) to low current plasmas in the Mega Amp Spherical Tokamak (MAST) was found to be correlated with substantial drops in neutron production, suggesting a significant degradation of fast ion confinement. The effects of such perturbations on fast ions in MAST have been modelled us…

A non-steady-state orbit-following Monte-Carlo code has been developed. As part of the verification and validation of the code, calculations of time dependent neutron rates have been made for a specific shot in the Mega Amp Spherical Tokamak (MAST) using three-dimensional fields representing vacuum resonant magnetic perturbations (RMPs) and toroida…

This paper describes the interferometer systems on the Large Helical Device (LHD). LHD is equipped with five interferometer systems, each of which has a different operational purpose and measurable electron density range. A single-channel millimeter-wave interferometer is mainly used for low-density plasmas along a horizontal line of sight on the e…
