Title: Alcator C-Mod: Research in support of ITER and steps beyond

Abstract

This paper presents an overview of recent highlights from research on Alcator C-Mod. Significant progress has been made across all research areas over the last two years, with particular emphasis on divertor physics and power handling, plasma-material-interaction studies, ELM-suppressed pedestal dynamics, core transport and turbulence, and RF heating and current drive utilizing Ion Cyclotron and Lower Hybrid tools. Specific results of particular relevance to ITER include: inner wall SOL transport studies that have led, together with results from other experiments, to the change of the detailed shape of the inner wall in ITER; runaway electron studies showing that the critical electric field required for runaway generation is much higher than predicted from collisional theory; core tungsten impurity transport studies reveal that tungsten accumulation is naturally avoided in typical C-Mod conditions.
