We present an invited talk on the experimental study of the nonlinear interaction processes of the edge plasma turbulence studied in the JFT-2M tokamak machine of JAEA and in the CHS helical machine of the NIFS. We made a progress in understanding the nonlinear interaction of the drift wave turbulence and the zonal flow by measuring the potential fluctuations and density fluctuations by the measurement of the electrostatic probes. We found that the measured indices such as the bicoherence or the biphase are consistent with the results of a theoretical study of the drift-wave-zonal-flow system for the first time. We also made the convergence characteristic of these indices clear against the realization numbers for the first time. The study progresses the understanding of the plasma turbulence and structural formation in the plasma, and the results contributes much to the understanding of the transport process in the plasma.
