  • Section 8:

  • Reciprocating Langmuir Probe @ Midplane

  • Fast stroke ~100 mm in ~100 ms

  • Slow positioning between shots

Conclusions
Conclusions

  • Work is in progress comparing the experimental results with the ESEL 2D turbulence code.

  • We observed cross coherence of the particle flux and the Reynolds stress.

  • Correlations with other SOL diagnostics are to be done.
