Frozen magnetic flux in a tokamak discharge

T. H. Osborne, R. N. Dexter, S. C. Prager

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The magnetic flux at the center and the safety factor profile are found to remain stationary (or frozen) during the rapid change in electron temperature that accompanies the sawtooth oscillation. This is consistent with the classical expectation.
