I’m a plasma strand PhD student being supervised by Prof. Bruce Lipschultz. In general I will be studying the properties of the boundary plasma of JET using a range of diagnostics. More specifically, I will use cameras, viewing the main chamber of JET at a specific wavelength, to estimate the radial ion flux from the edge of the confined plasma to the wall of the main chamber. The objective of this research is to understand the physics governing the radial ion transport and to connect it to the erosion of main chamber surfaces, which can degrade the plasma performance.
