Improvement of an enhanced confinement state in a high poloidal beta (βp) regime without sawtooth activity has been achieved in JT-60U. A confinement mode has been demonstrated where both the edge and the core confinement are improved. The attainable βp was also extended to higher values in this improved mode, because of its broader pressure profile. As a result of the improvement in confinement and in attainable βp, the highest value of the fusion triple product has been extended by a factor of 2.5 over that achieved in the 1992 experiments; it has reached (1.1 ± 0.3) × 1021 m-3.s.keV with a central ion temperature of about 37 keV. The D-D neutron emission rate has also been doubled in these experiments and has reached (5.6 ± 0.6) × 1016 s-1.
