The high-beta capability of the spherical tokamak, coupled with a suite

of world-leading diagnostics on MAST, has facilitated significant

improvements in the understanding of performance-limiting core

instabilities in high performance plasmas. For instance, the newly

installed motional Stark effect diagnostic, with radial resolution
