Abstract

Heavy ion beam probe measurements of the interior of the TEXT-U tokamak plasma have been used to discover a density fluctuation spectrum that exhibits poloidal asymmetry with ballooning characteristics. The asymmetry was eliminated at the smallest radii during the electron cyclotron heating phase, which has a flatter density profile and a higher electron temperature.
