Research on the scrape-off-layer plasma of the Alcator C-Mod Tokamak is reviewed. The research has focused on understanding the transport of energy and particles both parallel and perpendicular to the magnetic field. Large differences between the inboard, high-field side scrape-off-layer and the outboard, low-field side are found. On the outboard side large(More)
This article and the accompanying tables present the results of the 27th annual CRA Taulbee Survey 1 of Ph.D. granting departments of computer science (CS) and computer engineering (CE) in the United States and Canada. This survey is conducted annually by CRA for the purpose of documenting trends in student enrollment, employment, and faculty salaries.(More)
Recent analysis of Gas Puff Imaging (GPI) data from Alcator C-Mod found blob velocities with a modified tracking time delay estimation (TDE). These results disagree with velocity analysis performed using direct Fourier methods. In this paper, the two analysis methods are compared. The implementations of these methods are explained, and direct comparisons(More)
A linear array of four small biased electrodes was installed in NSTX in an attempt to control the width of the scrape-off layer by creating a strong local poloidal electric field. The set of electrodes was separated poloidally by a 1 cm gap between electrodes and were located slightly below the midplane of NSTX, 1 cm behind the rf antenna, and oriented so(More)
