Effects of density asymmetries on heavy-impurity transport in a rotating tokamak-plasma
The transport equations of heavy trace-impurities in a tokamak plasma with strong toroidal rotation have been studied analytically in the collisional regime. It is found that the poloidal asymmetry of the impurity-density, which occurs because of the rotation, brings about a large enhancement of the diffusivity and indeed of the pinch velocity above the conventional Pfirsh-Schlüter values.
