Measurement and modelling of neon radiation profiles in radiating boundary discharges in ASDEX upgrade
The radiation and transport characteristics of ASDEX upgrade discharges with a neon-driven radiative mantle are modelled using a 1-dimensional radial impurity transport code that has been coupled to a simple divertor model describing particle recycling and pumping. The code is well suited to describing the measured impurity line radiation, total, Soft X-ray and bremsstrahlung radiation in regions of the plasma that are not dominated by 2-dimensional effects. The recycling and pumping behaviour of neon as well as the bulk transport of neon for radiative boundary scenarios are discussed.
