Abstract

The rapid temperature collapse in tokamak sawtooth oscillations having incomplete magnetic reconnection is generally thought to occur through ergodization of the magnetic field. An experiment in The Joint European Torus (JET) using injected nickel indicates that this explanation is improbable. The implications of this result are discussed after a description of the experimental observations.
