In the worlds of nuclear energy, mining, petrochemical processing, and sub-sea, robots are being used for an increasing number and range of tasks. This is resulting in ever more complex robotics installations being deployed, maintained, and extended over long periods of time. Additionally, the unstructured, experimental, or unknown operational c…

In quiescent H-mode (QH-mode) regime, edge harmonic oscillations (EHOs) are believed to provide necessary radial transport to prevent occurrence of large edge localized modes. A systematic modeling study is performed here on the low-n EHOs in a DIII-D QH-mode plasma [Chen et al. 2016 Nucl. Fusion 56 076011], by utilizing the MARS-Q code [Liu et a…

Resistive plasma response to the n = 1 (n is the toroidal mode number) RMP field is systematically investigated for a high-beta hybrid discharge on ASDEX Upgrade. Both linear and quasi-linear response are modelled using the MARS-F and MARS-Q codes, respectively. Linear response computations show a large internal kink response when the plasma centra…

Poloidally asymmetric distributions of nickel ions have been observed experimentally in Joint European Torus optimized shear tokamak plasmas following nickel laser injection experiments. Two types of asymmetries occur. In the first type of asymmetry, which has earlier been observed in high-confinement mode plasmas, nickel ions accumulate on the out…


An empirical procedure, ‘‘LINT,’’ for relating emission line intensities of intrinsic impurity ions to their elemental contributions to the total, bolometric, radiation loss and the volume-averaged effective ion charge, Zeff , has been developed and applied to limiter plasmas in the JET tokamak. In this article we discuss extensions to the …
