Abstract

The results of an extensive study on transport mechanisms and on improved confinement scenarios in RFX are reported. The scaling of the thermal conductivity in the core with the Lundquist number indicates that the magnetic field in this region is not fully stochastic, as proved by the existence of thermal barriers observed in single helicity configurations. The electrostatic transport at the edge has been proved to depend on the highly sheared E × B flow, which has been interpreted using fluid and Monte Carlo models. Regimes of improved confinement have been obtained in the core by poloidal current drive techniques, and the electrostatic transport has been reduced at the edge by biasing experiments. A radiation mantle caused by impurity seeding has been found to successfully reduce the local plasma-wall interaction without causing a significant deterioration in the plasma performance.
