Abstract

This course deals with plasma spectroscopy and its applications to magnetically confined plasmas from an experimental point of view. In the first lesson examples of the level structure and possible radiative transitions in atomic systems are described. Excitation and ionization models relevant to fusion plasmas are included. In the second lesson the general behaviour of impurities in tokamaks is treated. It is shown, how spectroscopy contributes to the investigation of sources, transport and impurity concentrations in the plasma. The third lesson, finally, gives some experimental results illustrating specific applications of spectroscopy. The main emphasis lies on transport problems and their consequences.
