Abstract

The National Spherical Torus eXperiment (NSTX) is a medium-sized, low-aspect ratio, spherical tokamak (ST) whose aims are to study 1) the unique physics properties of the ST, 2) complement higher aspect ratio tokamak physics and support ITER, and 3) establish attractive ST operating regimes for future ST-based fusion energy producing devices. Research on NSTX over the past 15 years has been broadly based. Transport and turbulence studies focused on identifying the source of the highly anomalous and dominant electron energy transport, as well as electromagnetic effects on turbulence, in neutral beam ...
