Non-axisymmetric perturbation coils in tokamaks are commonly used to modify the properties of the plasma edge. This can be beneficial for future fusion, since it allows to influence possible harmful edge instabilities.

Recent research has shown that the perturbation field from these coils excite static ideal magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) modes at the edge, which significantly distort the axisymmetry of tokamaks. This three-dimensional (3D) tokamak geometry is well described by MHD equilibrium codes originally developed for stellarators. Moreover, measurements of small (helically) localised instabilities combined with stability analysis demonstrate that the induced 3D geometry produces regions of lower stability on the plasma surface.
