# Nonlinear dynamics of the fishbone-induced alpha transport on ITER

@article{Brochard2020NonlinearDO, title={Nonlinear dynamics of the fishbone-induced alpha transport on ITER}, author={G. Brochard and R. J. Dumont and Hinrich L{\"u}tjens and Xavier Garbet and Thomas Nicolas and Patrick Maget}, journal={Nuclear Fusion}, year={2020}, volume={60} }

The fishbone-induced transport of alpha particles is computed for the ITER 15 MA baseline scenario (ITER Physics Expert Group on Energy Drive 1999 Nucl. Fusion 39 2471) using the non-linear hybrid Kinetic-MHD code XTOR-K. Two limit cases have been studied, in order to analyse the characteristic regimes of the fishbone instability: the weak kinetic drive limit (Berk et al 1999 Phys. Plasmas 6 3102) and the strong kinetic drive limit (Zonca et al 2015 New J. Phys. 17 013052). In both those…
