Global Approach to the Spectral Problem of Microinstabilities in Tokamak Plasmas Using a Gyrokinetic Model

Abstract

Ion temperature gradient (ITG) -related instabilities are studied in tokamak-like plasmas with the help of a new global eigenvalue code. Ions are modeled in the frame of gyrokinetic theory so that finite Larmor radius effects of these particles are retained to all orders. Non-adiabatic trapped electron dynamics is taken into account through the bounce… (More)
