Analytical model spectrum for electrostatic turbulence in tokamaks
An analytical model spectrum for three-dimensional electrostatic turbulence (homogeneous, stationary and locally isotropic in the plane perpendicular to the magnetic field) is presented. It was constructed by using experimental results from TFR and TEXT tokamaks and satisfies basic symmetry and parity conditions. The proposed spectrum seems to be tractable for explicit analytical calculations of transport processes and is consistent with experimental data. Additional experimental measurements in the bulk plasma are necessary in order to determine some unknown spectral properties of parallel propagation.
