Ionization instability driven magnetic island belt, particle confinement and edge profiles
The theory of transport across a low mode number magnetic island belt driven by the ionisation instability, elongated along the last entire q rational surface, and extending beyond the separatrix, leads to a number of predictions which are in agreement with observations in DIII-D, TEXTOR, ASDEX and CCT. It also suggests that transition to a regime characterised by an improved confinement should occur at a sufficiently high heating power level.
