The existence of a critical pressure gradient needed to drive the interchange instability is experimentally demonstrated in the simple magnetized torus TORoidal Plasma EXperiment A. Fasoli et al., Phys. Plasmas 13, 055902 2006 . This gradient is reached during a scan in the neutral gas pressure pn. Around a critical value for pn, depending on the magnetic… CONTINUE READING
