Abstract

Measurements of the gradient of the d-d fusion rate profile in an Ohmic PLT plasma are used to deduce the gradient of the ion temperature and thus the local ion thermal diffusivity through an energy balance analysis. The inferred ion diffusivity is consistent with neoclassical theory. © IOP Publishing Ltd.
