Abstract

A solitary wave like fluctuating structure is observed in the Large Mirror Device-Upgrade (LMD-U) under relatively high neutral pressure conditions. Ion saturation current fluctuations are measured and Fourier and wavelet power spectra are calculated. Temporal behavior of fluctuation power and strength of nonlinear coupling of low frequency coherent mode and background turbulence in a specific frequency region is analyzed. This is achieved using wavelet spectral and bispectral analyses with conditional averaging.
