Abstract

The observation of internal transport barriers in which ion thermal diffusivity is reduced to a neoclassical level has been made for the first time in tokamak plasmas fueled with deuterium and tritium ions using a broad current density profile. The heating and current density profiles required to obtain an ITB are similar in D-T and D-D plasmas.
