Observation of MHD structures in JET temperature profilesFunded under: FP2-FUSION 10C
Flat regions observed in the profiles of the electron temperature measured by LIDAR Thomson scattering, provide some evidence for the existence of helical MHD resistive mode structure in JET discharges. Comparison with profiles of the safety factor q, determined from magnetic equilibrium calculations, shows that the most prominent regions are located close to rational values of q. The flat regions are also correlated to perturbations observed with other independent experimental measurements such as soft X-rays, electron cyclotron emission and Mirnov oscillations.
