Title: Keeping fusion plasmas hot

Energetic ion transport in the DIII-D tokamak (the center post diameter is 2.2 m). An energetic ion orbit resulting from neutral beam injection is shown as the black trace. Here, the red and blue contours represent a synthetic image of a plasma wave (e.g., the density perturbation of an Alfven eigenmode) that perturbs the ion orbit and causes it to impact the outer wall on the right, which happens to correspond to the location of the energetic ion loss detector diagnostic system.
