We report the first observation of a novel confinement regime in a stellarator plasma, characterized by increased confinement and reduced turbulent fluctuations. The transition to this new regime is driven by the injection of sub-millimetric boron powder grains into the plasma. With the line averaged electron density being kept constant, substantial increase of stored energy, electron and ion temperature have been observed. At the same time, the amplitude of the plasma turbulent fluctuations is halved. While lower frequency fluctuations are damped, higher frequency modes in the range 100 ≤ f [kHz] ≤ 200 are excited. The access to this regime has been observed for different heating schemes, namely with both electron and ion cyclotron resonant radio frequency, and neutral beams, for both directions of the magnetic field, and for both hydrogen and deuterium plasmas.
