The resistive wall mode (RWM) control on the HL-2M tokamak is simulated with the MARS-F code [Liu Y Q et al 2000 Phys. Plasmas 7 3681], aiming at quantifying control current and voltage requirements when more realistic issues are taken into account, i.e. the control power saturation and the sensor signal noise. The¬†fluid model predicts a narrow st…

A Doppler coherence imaging spectroscopy diagnostic has been developed on the HL- 2A tokamak for scrape-off-layer impurity plasma flow measurements. Two- dimensional imaging of line-averaged C2+ flow in the high-field-side scrape off layer with time resolution up to 1 ms, has been achieved successfully by this system. The spatial angular resolut…

The magnetohydrodynamic-kinetic hybrid theory has been extensively and successfully applied for interpreting experimental observations of macroscopic, low frequency instabilities, such as the resistive wall mode, in fusion plasmas. In this work, it is discovered that an analytic version of the hybrid formulation predicts a bifurcation of the mode d…

The structural changes during the phase change between the amorphous and crystalline phase in Ge 2 Sb 2 Te 5 have been the subject of intense study due to the importance of Ge 2 Sb 2 Te 5 in phase change memory devices. In our study, the energetics of the transition between the crystalline and the amorphous phase of Ge 2 Sb 2 Te 5 is explored using…
