Abstract

Turbulence can account for anomalous transport observed in tokamaks. Experimental results in ohmic (TCA) {1-2} and neutral beam (D III{3}, ISX-B{4}) heated plasmas have already shown a correlation between magnetic fluctuations and the electron energy confinement time. Density fluctuations measurements in TFR indicate a similar correlation {5}. We report here measurements of poloidal magnetic field fluctuations (b-theta) in JET and a comparison with plasma parameters as well as the energy confinement time tau-E.
