Abstract

The purposes of this paper are determination of the current density and safety factor profiles, J(r) and q(r), in IR-T1 tokamak. For these purposes, a diamagnetic loop with its compensation coil, and also an array of magnetic probes were designed, constructed, and installed on outer surface of the IR-T1 tokamak chamber, and then the poloidal beta and poloidal and radial magnetic fields measured. Moreover, a few approximate values of the internal inductance for the different possible profiles of the plasma current density are also calculated. From the results, current density and q-profiles obtained.

Keywords
