2 Ohmic and RF Heated s in Alcator CMod Internal transport barrier () plasmas can arise as a result of RF heating or spontaneously in Ohmic Alcator CMod plasmas. The operational prescription for the includes formation of an EDA H mode. In Ohmic s, the toroidal magnetic field is ramped down and then increased. Like s generated with offaxis ICRF heating, Ohmic s have peaked pressure profiles which can be suppressed by onaxis ICRF heating. Recent work on onset conditions for the ICRF generated (K. Zhurovich, et al., Nuclear Fusion 47, 1220 (2007)) demonstrates that the broadening of the ion temperature profile due to offaxis ICRF reduces the ion temperature gradient and suppresses the ITGinstabilitydriven particle flux. The object of this study is to add additional impurity transport information to the description and to examine the characteristics of s to find whether this model for onset is supported.
3 Summary Two modes in Alcator CMod Ohmic, no auxiliary heating Auxiliary heated: offaxis ICRF Common features previously identified» EDA HMode precursor required for both» Peaked pressure profiles evolve in both» Central ICRF heating suppresses peaking New results are for s with offaxis ICRF New boron impurity profiles are reported and used to study impurity transport at the onset of the» Inward advection is enhanced over diffusion during the» Impurity transport approaches neoclassical Clear profile T i increased but cannot confidently interpret a profile broadening gradient for n z is inboard of gradient for T i
4 in CMod Two scenarios Same precursorplasma target: EDA Hmode Ohmic: requires a B T ramp ICRF: Off axis deposition Very similar characteristics Form from an Hmode Strong pressure profile peaking Peaking can be clamped by deposition of central ICRF power Results from either will apply to the other There are advantages of studying one in preference to the other ICRF deposition complicates the transport analysis ICRF deposition has more operational similarities to s on other devices

6 Auxiliary Heated s HMode n e peaking T e peaking Offaxis ICRF deposition forms from EDA Hmode plasma is characterized by peaking of the electron density profile. The change of the electron temperature is less dramatic Similar can be formed in an Ohmic plasma
7 Offaxis ICRF and Improved Confinement Offaxis ICRF deposition leads to formation For the results shown here, deposition was on the high field side < R (m) < 0.6 (vertical dashed lines) Deposition can be on the low field side. Improved impurity transport is observed between the two vertical lines on the low field side Improved impurity transport on flux surfaces inboard of surfaces on which the heating is resonant. T i gradient just outboard of the gradient ICRF Resonance Improved boron confinement
8 Compare n e and T e for s Hmode Hmode Ohmic Auxiliary Heated characterized by peaking in the pressure profile for ρ < 0.6 Density peaking is dominant contributor Peaking can be clamped by deposition of central RF (Fiore, et al., POP)
9 Ion Temperature foot ICRF Resonance Range Impurity Gradient Region
10 Ion Temperature T i profile changes when the plasma transitions from Hmode to The T i gradient is just outside the ICRF deposition and clearly outside the foot as defined by the electron density profile. Inboard of the gradient, T i during is larger than T i in HMode The T i increase is well developed at the location of the impurity gradient enhancements
11 Impurity Transport in an The current work extends earlier CMod impurity transport research (J. W. Rice, et al., Nuclear Fusion 42,510 (2002)) with local measurements of lighter ions. New measurements of fully stripped B +5 profiles with spatial and temporal resolution are reported here. In the earlier work on CMod, chordaveraged measurements of puffed argon ions were reproduced in numerical simulations of impurity transport to characterize the transport. This measurement is local. There is just one boron ion present at the measurement locations. The analysis is therefore more transparent. Differences between light and heavy impurity transport have been observed in other experiments. (ref JET)
12 Measured B +5 Density B+5 MIST Impurity Gradient Region Hmode B+4 Foot The boron density profile steepens during the The deposition location for the ICRF is just outside the foot of the gradient (see the configuration) The inset shows the MIST analysis for a similar discharge. In measurement and simulation, B +5 is the only boron charge state for R < 0.87 m. B +5 density for R < 0.87 is the entire boron density. ICRF Resonance
13 Measured Electron Density Magnetic axis Hmode ICRF Resonance The boron density profile steepens during the The heating location for the ICRF is predominately just outside the foot of the n e gradient (see the configuration)
14 Impurity transport "v/d" analysis The transport equation is For quasilinear or neoclassical descriptions of impurity transport transport z z " n j z $ j = # D +! n j " r! n z j Dynamic equilibrium = 0! t For fullystripped boron (B +5 ) R < 0.85 m = 0 # n z j # t + "! z j S z j = S That region is "source free" so that z 1! n j v = z n j! r D Inward convection is increased over diffusion in z j v/d v/d v/d Hmode
15 Is B +5 neoclassical? Is B +5 neoclassical? or Can it be shown to obey neoclassical descriptions? The diffusion coefficient is D = D neo +D an The convection coefficient is purely neoclassical v = v neo Limit collisions of the impurity to collisions with the main plasma ion, D + in this case T D =T z Z v neo = D I # 1 dn D neo Z D n D dr " H 1 dt D & % (, 0.2 ) H ) 0.5 $ T D dr ' 1 dn Z n Z dr = 1 dn D n D dr Z I Z D D neo D neo + D an ( 1" H# D ) " D = 1 dt D T D dr 1 dn D n D dr #1
16 Is the transport neoclassical? B +5 is neoclassical over a narrow range inboard of the at the foot For this, use D an << D neo Z I ( 1! H ) 1 dn Z n Z dr 1 dn D n D dr = Z I Z D ( 1" H) # 2.5 "
17 Comparison with Previous CMod Results J.E. Rice, et al., Nuclear Fusion, 42, 510 (2002) S.J. Wukitch, et al., Physics of Plasmas, 9, 2149 (2002) present work v D
18 Comparison with JET Results v D R.Dux, et al., Nucl. Fus., 44, 260 (2004) present work
19 Summary Confinement of light impurities is improved during Inward convection is enhanced relative to diffusion, or equivalently, diffusion is reduced relative to inward convection. Transport for boron is neoclassical over a limited range of the plasma radius. Further confirmation of particle transport similarities between CMod and other devices. T i profiles change during the transition from Hmode to. T i increases on flux surfaces connected to the ICRF resonance region. T i increases outboard of the foot (defined using n e (R)) and of the region where the light impurity gradient steepens Additional experiments planned for the next campaign.
