Kuvaus

The cross-correlation function of high field side radial correlation X-mode Doppler reflectometry (DR) measured in the FT-2 tokamak experiment is shown to be a factor of three narrower than that computed using the fast linear (Born approximation) version of the X-mode DR synthetic diagnostics developed in the framework of the ELMFIRE global gyrokinetic modeling of the FT-2 ohmic discharge. This difference is observed in spite of the fact that the computed DR signal frequency spectra are shown to be similar to those measured. A modest phase modulation of the probing and backscattering waves by the long-scale turbulent density fluctuations is shown, both experimentally and in computation, to be responsible for the observed effect.
