In preparation for the upcoming MAST-U campaign, pedestal stability of spherical tokamaks is revisited by investigating standard H-mode discharges on MAST. As a step beyond previous studies, both ion and electron profiles are used for obtaining equilibria and a diverse set of pedestals is evaluated. Stability analysis with the ELITE and CGYRO co…

Detailed 2D measurements of long-wavelength density fluctuations in the pedestal region with beam emission spectroscopy during the period between edge localized modes (ELMs) indicate two distinct bands of fluctuations propagating in opposite poloidal directions in the plasma frame: one lower frequency band (50–150 kHz) advects in the ion-diamagne…

Deconvolution of Thomson scattering (TS) profiles is required when the gradient length of the electron temperature ( T e ) or density ( n e ) are comparable to the instrument function length ( R ). The most correct method for deconvolution to obtain underlying T e and n e profiles is by consideration of scattered signals. However, deconvolution at …
