Molecular impurities in ASDEX Upgrade plasma dischargesFunded under: EAEC-FUSION 12C
In view of the possible significance of surface chemistry for the next generation of fusion machines, part of the experimental programme on ASDEX Upgrade has been devoted to obtaining more information on molecules, about their production mechanisms, yields, dependence on wall conditions, and consecutive transport in the plasma. With its similarities in divertor geometry to ITER and its relevant flux and power scaling, such investigations on ASDEX Upgrade might contribute significantly to the future use of graphite or other carbon compounds.
