Turbulent inward pinch of plasma confined by a levitated dipole magnet
Turbulence usually makes plasmas more homogeneous. But in an unusual device for which the confining field is generated by a levitated half-tonne superconducting magnet, a study finds that turbulentExpand

Design and initial operation of the LDX facility
The levitated dipole experiment (LDX) explores the physics of high-temperature plasmas confined by a dipole magnetic field. Stable high-beta plasma has been created and confined by the magnetic fieldExpand

Deuterium–tritium high confinement (H‐mode) studies in the Tokamak Fusion Test Reactor
High or enhanced confinement (H‐mode) plasmas have been obtained for the first time with nearly equal concentrations of deuterium and tritium in high‐temperature, high poloidal beta plasmas in theExpand

Stationary density profiles in the Alcator C-mod tokamak
In the absence of an internal particle source, plasma turbulence will impose an intrinsic relationship between an inwards pinch and an outwards diffusion resulting in a stationary density profile.Expand

Experimental studies of divertor stabilization in an axisymmetric tandem mirror
A divertor coil set has been installed on the Tara tandem mirror [Nucl. Fusion 22, 549 (1982); Plasma Physics and Controlled Nuclear Fusion Research 1984 (IAEA, Vienna, 1985), Vol. 2, p. 285] forExpand

Dipole equilibrium and stability
A plasma confined in a dipole field exhibits unique equilibrium and stability properties. In particular, equilibria exist at all beta values and these equilibria are found to be stable to ballooningExpand

Stabilization of MHD modes in an axisymmetric plasma column through the use of a magnetic divertor
The introduction of a magnetic limiter is proposed for stabilization of MHD interchange modes in the central cell of a tandem mirror. The magnetic limiter creates a ring null in the magnetic field,Expand

Electrostatic drift modes in a closed field line configuration
The stability of electrostatic drift waves in a closed field line configuration in collisionality regimes ranging from collisional to collisionless is compared. The maximum sustainable pressureExpand

TFTR DT experiments
The Tokamak Fusion Test Reactor (TFTR) is a large tokamak which has performed experiments with 50:50 deuterium - tritium fuelled plasmas. Since 1993, TFTR has produced about 1090 D - T plasmas usingExpand
