Radiative edges under control by impurity fluxes
Experimental results from TEXTOR are presented to provide strong evidence for the feasibility of the cold radiative plasma mantle, a concept which might be a possible solution for the energy exhaust problem in a fusion reactor. The concept is compared with the high density divertor. The compatibility with other constraints, limitations and open problems are discussed, in particular the issues of stationarity (feed back control, thermal instabilites, q = 2), energy confinement, He-exhaust and fuel dilution.
