Particle beams have been developed at the Culham Laboratory for many years, mainly for application to the production of high-temperature plasmas. These developments included demonstration offundamental plasma physics such as particle trapping, heating, and current drive coupled to continuous advances in the physics and technology of ion beam produc…

Magnetic feedback control has been used in the DITE tokamak to substantially reduce saturated m = 2, n = 1 instabilities in both Ohmic discharges and discharges with lower-hybrid current drive (LHCD). Feedback has been used for the first time to significantly increase the disruptive density limit in a tokamak. LHCD on DITE stabilizes the sawtooth i…
