2000 (English)In: Czechoslovak Journal of Physics, ISSN 0011-4626, E-ISSN 1572-9486, Vol. 50, 11-24 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Experimental and theoretical aspects of the role of electric fields in plasma confinement and exhaust are overviewed. The history of the discovery of the importance of electric fields in plasmas is depicted. The correlation between radial electric fields and plasma rotation is outlined. The concept of E x B flow velocity shear suppression is explained and modelled. Edge polarization results on the CASTOR tokamak are presented. Recent results in the formation of internal transport barriers are summarized.
