We present recent results on turbulence measurements in TCV L-mode plasmas. The transport reduction at negative triangularity (compared to positive triangularity) is reflected in the reduction of the temperature fluctuation level, in the low frequency part of the spectrum (30-150 kHz), measured by correlation ECE in the outer equatorial plane. The TEM induced transport computed from nonlinear gyrokinetic simulations is shown to decrease with decreasing triangularity and increasing collisionality. First results of an experimental scenario to reach the H-mode regime at negative triangularity in TCV are presented. Then, we report on an innovative divertor magnetic configuration: the snowflake (SF) divertor as opposed to the classical single-null (SN) divertor. For ELMy SF plasmas, the strike-point properties (density, temperature, fluctuation level,...) are studied with Langmuir probes (LPs) and compared with those of a SN configuration obtained within the same discharge.
