A fast bolometer was used for direct measurements of parallel electron energy flux in the edge of the Texas Experimental Tokamak (TEXT-U) [K. W. Gentle, Nucl. Technol. Fusion 1, 479 (1981)]. The fluctuating component of the parallel electron energy flux, combined with a measurement of magnetic fluctuations, provides an upper limit to the perpendicular electron flux. This magnetically driven energy flux cannot account for the observed energy flux.
