Effect of radial particle transport on radiation from light impurities
Radiation losses from light impurities are estimated from tokamak boundary plasmas within the last closed magnetic surface, where radial transport is of great importance for ion distribution over charge states. Radiation strengths, characterising the integral intensity of radiation, are calculated for different ions of carbon, oxygen, neon and silicon. Characteristic plasma parameters in the regions where these particles mainly radiate are determined. A simple zero dimensional model of the heat transport at the plasma edge is proposed and the effect of the particle transfer on the detachment conditions is examined. The results are compared with experimental data from ohmic and auxiliary heated discharges in TEXTOR. Conditions necessary for the creation of a radiating periphery in a reactor are discussed.
