We present the measurements of plasma characteristics in the scrape-off layer (SOL) of the Tore Supra tokamak performed by means of reciprocating Langmuir probe. The probe is inserted into the machine from top. As the radial distance from last closed flux surface (LCFS) increases, ion saturation current exhibits stronger bursty character and its probability density function becomes increasingly skewed towards positive values. At the same time, burst duration and inter-burst time increase… CONTINUE READING
