Charge exchange fluxes of ripple trapped slowing-down ions during L-to-H transition and ELMsFunded under: EAEC-FUSION 12C
Neutral fluxes from charge exchange with ripple-trapped particles show a remarkably different behaviour during L and H mode; their measurement provides a new diagnostic for the mode discrimination of the plasma. A possible reason for the changes of the fluxes is the action of a radial electric field. This seems to grow steadily after the L-to-H transition with a strong increase (jump in the ms range) at the transition to the quiescent H-mode. During ELMs the fluxes reduce to L-mode level. Measurements with 100 micron time resolution show no action in the fluxes prior to the change in the D(alpha)-signal at the start of type I ELM.
