instabilities in fusion-plasma devices. Maximizing the fusion power production in toroidally symmetric magnetic confinement devices (tokamaks) requires high-confinement (H-mode) plasma conditions that have high edge-plasma pressures. A ubiquitous feature of these high edge pressure, steady-state, H-mode tokamak plasmas is repetitive instabilities known as ‘edge-localized modes’ (ELMs), which release a significant fraction of the thermal energy of the plasma to the first wall of the device… CONTINUE READING
