While current tokamak experiments are beginning to utilise real-time feedback control systems to manage the plasma exhaust, future tokamaks still require validation of theoretical models used to predict the threshold impurity concentration required to facilitate stationary divertor operation. This work exploits new spectroscopic measurements of …

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

An understanding of the plasma edge and divertor is essential for predicting the performance of next-step machines such as ITER. Transport codes used to study the divertor behaviour [1] employ atomic physics data in two applications. The first is to predict the power radiated by the fuel and impurity atoms, which is carried out as a post-processing…

Reducing the plasma power exhaust impacting on plasma facing components during steady state operation is one of the major design issues in future tokamaks such as ITER. Impurity seeding, e.g. with N, is one method of achieving this and has been used for a long time in tokamak research [1]. In this work we exploit a recently developed spectroscopic …
