A 3D Monte Carlo code for plasma transport in island divertors
A fully three-dimensional self-consistent Monte Carlo code for modelling the plasma transport in island divertors has been developed. This is the Edge Monte Carlo 3D or EMC3. In a first step, the code solves a simplified version of the three-dimensional time-independent plasma fluid equations. Coupled to the neutral transport code EIRENE, the EMC3 code has been used to study the particle, energy and neutral transport in W7-AS island divertor configurations. First results are compared with data from different diagnostics (ie Langmuir probes, H(alpha) cameras and thermography).
