Title: Hysteresis Relation between Turbulence and Temperature Modulation during the Heat Pulse Propagation into a Magnetic Island in DIII-D

Abstract

Here, the hysteresis relation between turbulence and temperature modulation during the heat pulse propagation into a magnetic island is studied for the first time in toroidal plasmas. Lissajous curves of the density fluctuation ($$\sim\atop{n}$$/n) and the electron temperature (T e) modulation show that the ($$\sim\atop{n}$$/n) propagation is faster than the heat pulse propagation near the O-point of the magnetic island. This faster $$\sim\atop{n}$$/n propagation is an experimental evidence of the turbulence spreading from X-point to the O-point of the magnetic island.
