Project description

The present research programme aims at demonstrating the potential of the Dynamic Ergodic Divertor concept on TEXTOR to affect turbulence in tokamaks. This research will use advanced correlation reflectometry and will partly be based on plasma diagnostic systems at TEXTOR, designed and constructed by the UGent research group on Nuclear Fusion.
