Aims of the project: The project is focused on developments and exploitation of electric and magnetic probes in the COMPASS tokamak. The main aim is better understanding of phenomena, which take place at the edge of tokamak plasmas, such as turbulent transport in the scrape of layer, features in the pedestal region, edge localized modes e.t.c. Probe measurements will be compared with others non-invasive diagnostics available on the COMPASS tokamak. The research will be performed in a broad international collaboration, which is either already established or it will be newly established during execution of this project. An important element of the project is education and training of students and young researchers. We will organize training course for domestic and foreign students to acquaint them with main aspects of experimental plasma physics in tokamaks. This training school (two weeks) will be organize on the COMPASS tokamak twice a year.
