Abstract

The laser polarimetric measurement of equilibrium and fluctuating magnetic fields in a reversed field pinch was discussed. It was found that the relaxation of the current density profile at the sawtooth crash occurred on the time scale of 100 μs. The analysis suggested that the measurement of magnetic fluctuations and the current density profile was essential for understanding of the link between the current density profile.
