Abstract

It is summarised the wide phenomenology in fusion plasmas that indicates the link between physics of the edge, via the recycling, and confinement. An interpretation is proposed in which electrostatic waves excited by thermal background in the plasma core enhance the turbulence at the periphery, via a local non-linear mode coupling with ion-sound quasi-modes. This instability is favoured by low electron temperatures of the edge, which correspond to operations with high recycling.
