In 1993 Tore Supra contributed to progress in the tokamak approach to controlled fusion in two main ways; the first was through the creation of radiating layers. Radiating layers involving the ergodic divertor were shown to be compatible with the injection of additional power. The second contribution was the achievement of improved confinement regimes by control of the current profile. This improvement was demonstrated in discharges heated by a combination of hybrid and ionic cyclotron waves. Theoretical studies contributed to a better understanding of plasma penetration by hydrogen pellets, of chaos effects in the propagation of the hybrid wave, of particle transport in the zone controlled by the ergodic divertor, and the structure of turbulence in the edge plasma.
