Anomalous ion diffusion and radial-electric-field generation in a turbulent edge plasma potential weakly correlated in time and space

Using a simple model of tokamak-edge-plasma turbulence in the form of a spatially periodic and time-independent electrostatic potential, we have found recently a new type of anomalous impurity diffusion in this regime , . In the present contribution, we estimate this diffusion in the test-particle approach for a real turbulent potential obtained in an experiment. A significant difference in the impurity dynannics between the Hamiltonian and drift approaches is observed. As an interesting consequence of these dynamics, the possibility of radial-electric-field generation in the turbulence regimes appears. This effect can be of importance in scenarios related to transport barriers.
