Boronization, recycling and isotope ratio control experiments on COMPASS
Trimethyl boron has been used to boronise COMPASS. This tokamak had no previous surface conditioning by any thin film deposition. It gave excellent long-term impurity control but with significant change to the hydrogen recycling characteristics. Mass analysis of the emitted atomic fluxes has been proposed as a method to monitor the hydrogen isotope ratio. A calibrated neutral particle analyser (ACORD-12), capable of measuring simultaneously energy spectra and neutral particle fluxes of hydrogen and deuterium, has been used in an experimental system for isotope ratio control in the COMPASS tokamak.
