Abstract

Recent studies at the University of Saskatchewan have been focused on basic tokamak physics and fusion technology development. The studies have been conducted on the Saskatchewan Torus-Modified (STOR-M) tokamak, the only tokamak in Canada at the present time, and on a newly developed dense plasma focus (DPF) device. Active control of the magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) instabilities and the plasma flow rotation has been achieved by resonant magnetic perturbations (RMP). Momentum injection from a tangentially injected compact torus (CT) to the STOR-M discharge has been observed. The energy resolved x-rays radiation has also been measured in the DPF device using an array of silicon photodetectors.
