Observation of ELM-induced neutral particle charge exchange fluxes in TCV
During ohmic H-mode discharges in TCV, edge localized mode (ELM) induced neutral particle bursts have been recorded by a neutral particle analyser for several plasma configurations. These bursts occurred simultaneously with the characteristic D-alpha pulses. In this paper it is shown that prompt desorption and recycling of the particles, expelled during an ELM, at the divertor strike zones can account for the magnitude of the ELM-induced neutral particle fluxes.
