Abstract

A conditioning technique for fusion devices has been developed at the TEXTOR tokamak in KFA Jülich. It is based on the plasma assisted vapour deposition of amorphous hydrogen containing carbon and carbon-boron films on the plasma facing inner wall surfaces. Significantly increased plasma performance has been achieved by this method, mainly based on the suppression of metal liberation from the inner walls, on the reduction of hydrocarbon formation on carbonaceous surfaces and on the control of oxygen plasma impurities via gettering processes.
