The HL-2A tokamak has a very closed divertor geometry, and a new infrared camera has been installed for high resolution studies of edge-localized mode (ELM) heat load onto the outer divertor targets. The characteristics of power deposition patterns on the lower outer divertor target plates during ELMs are systematically analyzed with the infrared t…


Deformation mechanisms of high entropy alloys (HEAs) at cryogenic temperatures have attracted extensive research interest. We used in situ neutron diffraction to study the tensile behavior of a face-centered-cubic HEA at 77 and 15 K and compared its stacking fault energy (SFE) at ambient and cryogenic temperatures. The SFE dropped from 28…

Ti-containing micro-alloyed steels are often alloyed with molybdenum (Mo) to gain superior ageing-resistance through reduced nano-precipitate coarsening, although the exact mechanism is still disputed. Using small angle neutron scattering (SANS), we characterize precipitate composition and coarsening in Ti micro-alloyed steels with and without M…

The deformation responses at 77 and 293 K of a FeCoNiCr high-entropy alloy, produced by a powder metallurgy route, are investigated using in situ neutron diffraction and correlative transmission electron microscopy. The strength and ductility of the alloy are significant improved at cryogenic temperatures. The true ultimate tensile strengt…

Cold and hot vertical displacement events (VDEs) are frequently related to the disruption of vertically-elongated tokamaks. The weak poloidal magnetic field around the null-points of a snowflake divertor configuration may influence the vertical displacement process. In this paper, the major disruption with a cold VDE and the vertical disruption in …


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…
