Convective transport by intermittent blob-filaments: Comparison of theory and experiment
A blob-filament (or simply “blob”) is a magnetic-field-aligned plasma structure which is considerably denser than the surrounding background plasma and highly localized in the directionsExpand

Edge turbulence measurements in toroidal fusion devices
This paper reviews measurements of edge plasma turbulence in toroidal magnetic fusion devices with an emphasis on recent results in tokamaks. The dominant feature of edge turbulence is a high levelExpand

Search for coherent structure within tokamak plasma turbulence
Two‐dimensional tokamak edge density turbulence data are examined for possible coherent or organized structure. The spatial patterns of density fluctuations n appear to consist of localized ‘‘blobs’’Expand

Fluctuations and anomalous transport in tokamaks
This is a review of what is known about fluctuations and anomalous transport processes in tokamaks. It mostly considers experimental results obtained after, and not included in, the reviews of LiewerExpand

H-mode pedestal, ELM and power threshold studies in NSTX
H-mode operation plays a crucial role in National Spherical Torus Experiment (NSTX) research, allowing higher beta limits due to reduced plasma pressure peaking, and long pulse operation due to highExpand

Fokker-Planck 3-D modelling of axisymmetric collisional losses of fusion products in TFTR
The results of a 3-D (in constants of motion space) Fokker-Planck simulation of the collisional losses of fusion products in axisymmetric DT and DD discharges in TFTR are presented. The distributionsExpand

Edge turbulence imaging in the Alcator C-Mod tokamak
The two-dimensional (2D) radial vs poloidal structure of edge turbulence in the Alcator C-Mod tokamak [I. H. Hutchinson, R. Boivin, P. T. Bonoli et al., Nucl. Fusion 41, 1391 (2001)] was measuredExpand

Collisional avalanche exponentiation of runaway electrons in electrified plasmas
Abstract In contrast to earlier expectations, it is estimated that generation of runaway electrons from close collisions of existing runaways with cold plasma electrons can be significant even forExpand
