E × B Plasma Rotation and n = 1 Oscillation Observed in the NSTX-CHI Experiments

Abstract

In the National Spherical Torus Experiment (NSTX), a peak plasma current up to 390 kA has been successfully generated by the Coaxial Helicity Injection (CHI) current drive method. The plasma rotation (∼ 20 km/s) driven in the E × B toroidal direction by CHI has been clearly identified by an ion Doppler spectroscopic measurement. The n = 1 mode has been also… (More)
