Abstract

A correlation between drift-type fluctuations and anomalous radial transport was observed in GAMMA 10, and these fluctuations were suppressed by the electron-cyclotron-heating-driven radial electric field. We developed new diagnostics to conduct these studies: a simultaneous two-point-measurement gold neutral beam probe (GNBP) for the radial electric field and potential fluctuations, and a high-speed end-plate potential fluctuation measurement system. The electric field and its fluctuations were successfully obtained in a single plasma shot for the first time. Coherence between the drift-type potential fluctuations measured in the core plasma by the GNBP and those obtained by end-plate measurements was clearly observed. These potential and electric field fluctuations were clearly suppressed by the positive electric fields measured by two-point potential measurements using the GNBP and the end-plate system. We can obtain a powerful tool for probing the radial electric field and potential fluctuations in the core plasma because the end-plate potential fluctuation is the same as that in the core plasma measured using the new GNBP.
