- The Reversatron 2 RFP (R/a=50cm/8cm) has been operated with interchangeable shells to investigate resistive wall modes. Shell penetration times are 610, 100, and 4 μsec (no shell). With the 610 μsec shell, the plasma current is ≤ 65 kA and the duration ≤ 550 μsec. With no shell, helium discharges are more resistive and hydrogen discharges cannot be sustained. An m=1, n=-6 mode resonant on axis grows to a relative amplitude of 20% during the setting-up phase. With the 100μsec shell, deuterium discharges can be sustained but are degraded due to a broad spectrum of modes. The increased plasma resistance can be correlated with the flux intersecting the wall. 21 refs., 12 figs.
