Title: Comment on Li pellet conditioning in tokamak fusion test reactor

Abstract

Li pellet conditioning in TFTR results in a reduction of the edge electron density which allows increased neutral beam penetration, central heating, and fueling. Consequently, the temperature profiles became more peaked with higher central T{sub i}, T{sub e}, toroidal rotation, and neutron emission rates.
