Chapter 3: MHD stability, operational limits and disruptions

Progress in the area of MHD stability and disruptions, since the publication of the 1999 ITER Physics Basis document (1999 Nucl. Fusion 39 2137-2664), is reviewed. Recent theoretical and experimental… Expand

A simple avalanche model as an analogue for magnetospheric activity

- S. Chapman, N. Watkins, R. Dendy, P. Helander, G. Rowlands
- Physics
- 1 July 1998

The power law dependence of the power spectrum of auroral indices, and in‐situ magnetic field observations in the earth's geotail, may be evidence that the coupled solar wind‐magnetospheric system… Expand

First measurement of elastic, inelastic and total cross-section at $$\sqrt{s}=13$$s=13 TeV by TOTEM and overview of cross-section data at LHC energies

- G. Antchev, P. Aspell,
+84 authors K. Zieliński - PhysicsThe European Physical Journal C
- 6 December 2017

The TOTEM collaboration has measured the proton–proton total cross section at $$\sqrt{s}=13~\hbox {TeV}$$s=13TeV with a luminosity-independent method. Using dedicated $$\beta ^{*}=90~\hbox… Expand

Damping of relativistic electron beams by synchrotron radiation

- F. Andersson, P. Helander, L. Eriksson
- Physics
- 21 November 2001

Relativistic electrons emit synchrotron radiation due to their gyro- and guiding-center motions in a curved magnetic field. In this article, the kinetic theory of relativistic electron beams is… Expand

Runaway acceleration during magnetic reconnection in tokamaks

- P. Helander, L. Eriksson, F. Andersson
- Physics
- 21 November 2002

In this paper, the basic theory of runaway electron production is reviewed and recent progress is discussed. The mechanisms of primary and secondary generation of runaway electrons are described and… Expand

Runaway electrons and the evolution of the plasma current in tokamak disruptions

- Håkan Smith, P. Helander, L. Eriksson, Dan Anderson, M. Lisak, F. Andersson
- Physics
- 11 October 2006

After the thermal quench of a tokamak disruption, the plasma current decays and is partly replaced by runaway electrons. A quantitative theory of this process is presented, where the evolution of the… Expand

Stellarator and tokamak plasmas: a comparison

- P. Helander, C. Beidler,
+8 authors P. Xanthopoulos - Physics
- 1 December 2012

An overview is given of physics differences between stellarators and tokamaks, including magnetohydrodynamic equilibrium, stability, fast-ion physics, plasma rotation, neoclassical and turbulent… Expand

Properties of a new quasi-axisymmetric configuration

- S. Henneberg, M. Drevlak,
+4 authors P. Helander - PhysicsNuclear Fusion
- 11 October 2018

A novel, compact, quasi-axisymmetric configuration is presented which exhibits low fast-particle losses and is stable to ideal MHD instabilities. The design has fast-particle loss rates below 8\% for… Expand
