POLOIDALLY ASYMMETRIC EDGE PHENOMENA IN JET
JET discharges near the density limit frequently form a region of high density strongly radiating plasma localized at the plasma edge, on the small major radius side. A detailed description of such an event is presented. The onset of such an event coincides with a decrease in the kinetic energy content of the discharge. The asymmetric state initiates a transition of the discharge to a new poloidal symmetric state characterized by high edge radiation and decreased interaction with the limiters. The concomitant modifications of the density and energy dynamics of the discharge are observed.
