The diamagnetic flux is the small difference in toroidal flux with plasma and without plasma. This measurement contains valuable information about the fast-ion confinement since energetic particles can significantly contribute to the plasma pressure and modify the diamagnetic flux. The diamagnetic flux diagnostic at ASDEX Upgrade  can therefore be used to investigate fast-ion transport in advanced scenario and resonant magnetic perturbation (RMPs) discharges.
