Examination of the chemical erosion of graphite in hydrogen plasmas
This work investigates graphite erosion in tokamak walls. A model of chemical dry etching of graphite in hydrogen is presented and the use of the model in ASDEX-Upgrade is discussed. Measurements on ASDEX-Upgrade using mass spectrometry show that the extent of graphite erosion exceeds expected levels.
