The paper is a tribute to Nicol Peacock and has a focus on interests and developments at Culham Laboratory from ~ 1970 when Nicol led the UKAEA spectroscopy team. The paper charts a little of the evolution of these models and their data through the seventies and eighties on into this century at Culham. The paper concludes with the state of efforts …

In this Brief Report we study the measured and modeled Lyman- a intensity ratios for hydrogenlike Cl XVII in a deuterium base plasma in the Joint European Torus tokamak and examine the agreement between experiment and theory for a particular plasma shot. A collisional-radiative model is used to calculate the values of the intensity ratios using mea…

Materials research represents a significant part of the European and world effort on fusion research. Detailed knowledge of materials properties is needed in the design by analysis of power plant and experimental machine components, and in testing to design fusion materials with specific properties, a process that involves collection and examinatio…

The inclusion of collisional rates for He-like Fe and Ca ions is discussed with reference to the analysis of solar flare Fe XXV and Ca XIX line emission, particularly from the Yohkoh Bragg Crystal Spectrometer (BCS). The new data are a slight improvement on calculations presently used in the BCS analysis software in that the discrepancy in the Fe X…

A family of Johann configuration curved crystal spectrometers has been designed to share the basic engineering features of compactness, modularity, facility of alignment and focus, and incorporation of solid-state charge coupled device detector arrays. These detectors have intrinsically low noise, useful energy resolution, two-dimensional position …

We present a comparison of measured and theoretically modeled Lyman- a intensity ratios of hydrogenlike Al XIII impurity ions in a deuterium base plasma in the COMPASS-D tokamak. The time evolution of the intensity ratios is computed from a collisional-radiative model using measured plasma parameters and compared with line-of-sight integral values …

The equilibrium state in tokamak core plasmas has been studied using the relative intensities of resonance x-ray lines. A full spatial analysis involves comparison of the line intensities with ion diffusion calculations, including relevant atomic rates. A zero-dimensional model using a global ion loss rate approximation has also been demonstrated b…

An empirical procedure, ‘‘LINT,’’ for relating emission line intensities of intrinsic impurity ions to their elemental contributions to the total, bolometric, radiation loss and the volume-averaged effective ion charge, Zeff , has been developed and applied to limiter plasmas in the JET tokamak. In this article we discuss extensions to the …
