In this paper the confinement of the MeV ions that are created by D-D reactions in the TFTR tokamak [in Plasma Physics and Controlled Nuclear Fusion Research 1988 (IAEA, Vienna, 1989), Vol. 1, p. 27] is described. The ions that escape from the plasma are measured by a new type of detector located just outside the plasma edge. Most measurements made with this detector are consistent with the first-orbit loss, of these ions. Exceptions are correlated with strong magnetohydrodynamic activity, and a preliminary explanation is presented.
