Investigation of the sawtooth precursor oscillations of electron density and electron temperature in ohmic tokamak discharges
The m = 1 precursor oscillations and the sawtooth crash have been measured in a series of ohmic discharges in the TEXTOR tokamak. They are found to have a fixed phase relation. The outflow of heat and density during the crash has no radial symmetry. The enhanced transport is via the X-point of the rotating magnetic m = 1 island.
