• Investigation of background edge thermal transport in ELMing and ELM-suppressed H-modes in DIII-D 

      Stacey, Weston M.; Evans, T. E. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyAmerican Institute of Physics, 2006-11-17)
      Thermal diffusivities are inferred in the plasma edge of a matched pair of DIII-D [J. Luxon, Nucl. Fusion 42, 614 (2002)] high confinement mode discharges, one with edge localized modes (ELMs) present and the other with ...
    • Non-Diffusive Transport in the Tokamak Edge Pedestal 

      Stacey, Weston M.; Groebner, Richard J.; Evans, T. E. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInstitute of Physics, 2012)
      There are (at least) two classical mechanisms for non-diffusive transport in the edge plasma: i) particle “pinch” velocities due to forces such as VxB, and Er; and ii) outward drifts due to ion-orbit loss and X-transport. ...
