A new predictive computer simulation tool targeting the development of the H-mode pedestal at the plasma edge in tokamaks and the triggering and dynamics of edge localized modes (ELMs) is presented in this report. This tool brings together, in a coordinated and effective manner, several first-principles physics simulation codes, stability analysis packages,(More)
— The effects of an axial magnetic field on the development of instabilities during a z-pinch implosion are studied using 2-D images and interferometry. The measurements clearly show mitigation of magneto Rayleigh–Taylor instabilities with increased magnitude of the preembedded axial magnetic field. Introducing the axial magnetic field also gives rise to(More)
