24th International Conference on Plasma Surface Interactions in Controlled Fusion Devices (PSI), South Korea, 24 - 29 January 2021

A thorough physics and engineering analysis of alternative divertor configurations is carried out by examining benefits and problems by comparing the baseline single null solution with a Snowflake, an X- and a Super-X divertor. It is observed that alternative configurations can provide margin and resilience against large power fluctuations, but the…

46th European Physical Society Conference on Plasma Physics (EPS), Milan, 8-12 July 2019

Plasma detachment needs to be achieved in ITER [1] and future devices such as DEMO to dissipate most of the power in the Scrape-Off-Layer (SOL) and reduce the particle flux reaching the divertor targets. In order to enhance our capability to improve current, and design future tokamaks, we must improve our understanding of the relative effect on det…
