Carbon transport in the plasma edge of TEXTOR
The solution of the carbon impurity transport problem, presented here in a preliminary form, extends to a rather large integration domain and requires numerical methods. The problem is solved in the trace-impurity limit for a given hydrogen background plasma in contact with the ALT-II limiter assumed to be the dominant source of carbon atoms (due to physical sputtering by hydrogen ion bombardment). The theory accounts for drift motion, anomalous cross-field diffusion and classical transport of the C(z+)-ions with a strong collisional coupling to the electrons and hydrogen ions.
