A new inversion technique is presented for the identification of plasma filaments in wide-angle visible camera data. Direct inversion of camera data onto a field aligned basis is a poorly conditioned problem which is overcome by breaking the analysis into a `psuedo-inversion’ step followed by a `point spread function correction’ step. Camera …

Tangentially viewing fast camera footage of the low-field side snowflake minus divertor in TCV is analysed across a four point scan in which the proximity of the two X-points is varied systematically. The apparent flow observed in the post-processed movie shows two distinct regions of the camera frame exhibiting differing flow patterns. One flow in…

A statistical framework was introduced in textit{Militello et al., Nucl. Fusion 56, 104004 (2016)} to correlate the dynamics and statistics of L-mode and inter-ELM plasma filaments with the radial profiles of thermodynamic quantities they generate in the Scrape Off Layer. This paper extends the framework to cases in which the filaments are emitted …

Using high speed imaging of the divertor volume, the region close to the X-point in MAST is shown to be quiescent. This is confirmed by three different analysis techniques and the quiescent X-point region (QXR) spans from the separatrix to the N = 1.02 flux surface. Local reductions to the atomic density and effects associated with the camera vie…

Four numerical codes are employed to investigate the dynamics of Scrape-Off Layer filaments in tokamak relevant conditions. Experimental measurements were taken in the MAST device using visual camera imaging, which allows the evaluation of the perpendicular size and velocity of the filaments, as well as the combination of density and temperature as…
