The linear stability of a class of force-free equilibria in cylindrical geometry is investigated. The class consists of cylindrically symmetric force-free equilibria for which the ratio between the parallel current density and the magnetic field is a step function of the radius. It is suggested that plasmas in reversed field pinches could be roughl…

Collective fast ion effects on flows in tokamaks are investigated analytically and numerically. A general analysis of noncollisional electrodynamic momentum transfer from fast ions to bulk plasma is presented, with polarization effects and dissipation in the bulk plasma taken into account. The analysis is illustrated using idealized simulations of …

A wide range of studies on JET have contributed greatly to the development of the ELMy H-mode as a high-performance scenario for fusion devices and to the understanding of the physical processes that underlie it. Development has focused on the production of a highperformance, high-density, stationary scenario suited to deuterium-tritium operation a…

In tokamak disruptions the Ohmic current is often replaced by a current of runaway electrons, which is likely to be more peaked in the center of the discharge than the predisruption current. This raises the question of the resistive stability of the postdisruption plasma, where the equilibrium current is entirely carried by the runaway electrons wh…

We first describe the improved receiving system of the diagnostic experiment of millimeter-wave collective Thomson scattering being run on the Frascati Tokamak Upgrade FTU, and then discuss some peculiar problems and new operating procedures related to the investigation of strong anomalous spectra of nonthermal origin, many-orders-of-magnitude stro…

Determining d 2 I/dV 2 from a traditional Langmuir probe trace using numerical techniques is inherently noisy and generally yields poor results. We have developed a Langmuir probe system based on a method first used in the 1950's by Boyd and Twiddy [1]. The system measures the 2nd derivative directly. This paper presents results from the d…

A model of the space charge neutralization of negative ion beams, developed from the model due to Holmes, is applied to the ITER heating and diagnostic beams. The Holmes model assumed that the plasma electron temperature was derived from the stripped electrons. This is shown to be incorrect for the ITER beams and the plasma electron temperature is …

Throughout the various phases of the ITER project, extensive safety analyses have been performed to ensure that potential hazards to the public, the environment, and personnel are minimized. This work, done before a location for ITER had been chosen, resulted in a very comprehensive assessment of ITER safety in terms of the impact at a “generic s…

The status of the Joint Evaluated Fission and Fusion file (JEFF) is described. JEFF-3.1 comprises a significant update of actinide evaluations, materials evaluations that have emerged from various European nuclear data projects, the activation library JEFF-3.1/A, the decay data and fission yield sub-libraries, and fusion-related data files from the…
