Abstract

Plasma turbulence has been intensively studied in the research of magnetic confinement for realizing a nuclear fusion reactor, and the international research has provided various discoveries of and physics insights into turbulent plasmas, such as turbulence-driven transport, effects of electric field on confinement, generation of flows and fields, and so on, although the research has been performed with a strong weight on achieving fusion-relevant performance plasma. However, at present a project to construct a physics-oriented device, named PLAsma Turbulence Observatory (PLATO), in Kyushu University, aiming at essential physics understanding of turbulent plasmas. The article reviews the major physics achievements up to data, and the steps to reach the concept of a new toroidal device with the major purpose for physics understanding of plasma turbulence.
