  1. 1. Plasma-Facing Components in Tokamaks Material Modification and Fuel Retention

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Darya Ivanova; KTH.; [2012]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; magnetic confinement fusion; plasma-facing components; plasma-facing materials; fuel inventory; erosion and deposition;

    Abstract : Fuel inventory and generation of carbon and metal dust in a tokamak are perceived to be serious safety and economy issues for the steady-state operation of a fusion reactor, e.g. ITER. READ MORE

  2. 2. Plasma-Facing Components in Tokamaks Studies of Wall Conditioning Processes and Plasma Impact on Diagnostic Mirrors

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Álvaro García Carrasco; KTH.; [2014]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Plasa-wall interactions; wall conditioning; tracers; diagnostic mirrors; ICWC; Physics; Fysik;

    Abstract : Understanding of material migration and its impact on the formation of co-deposited mixed material layers on plasma-facing components is essential for the development of fusion reactors. This thesis focuses on this topic. It is based on experiments performed at JET and TEXTOR tokamaks. READ MORE

  3. 3. Material migration in tokamaks: Studies of deposition processes and characterisation of dust particles

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Armin Weckmann; KTH.; [2015]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; tokamak; fusion; plasma; material migration; particle transport; TEXTOR; PWI; plasma-wall interaction; plasma facing components; PFC; PFM; plasma facing materials; ALT limiter; MoF6; tracer experiment; molybdenum hexafluoride; future energy source; fuel retention; deuterium retention;

    Abstract : Thermonuclear fusion may become an attractive future power source. The most promising of all fusion machine concepts is the tokamak. Despite decades of active research, still huge tasks remain before a fusion power plant can go online. One of these important tasks deals with the interaction between the fusion plasma and the reactor wall. READ MORE

  4. 4. Impact of material migration on plasma-facing components in tokamaks

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Alvaro Garcia Carrasco; KTH.; [2016]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Fusion; material migration; wall conditioning; diagnostic mirrors; plasma-facing materials; Physics; Fysik;

    Abstract : Plasma-wall interaction plays an essential role in the performance and safety of a fusion reactor. This thesis focuses on the impact of material migration on plasma-facing components. It is based on experiments performed in tokamaks: JET, TEXTOR and ASDEX Upgrade. READ MORE

  5. 5. Kinetic modelling of runaway in plasmas

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Ola Embréus; [2016]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Fokker-Planck equation; synchrotron radiation; plasma; runaway; bremsstrahlung; Boltzmann equation;

    Abstract : The phenomenon of runaway occurs in plasmas in the presence of a strong electric field, which overcomes the collisional friction acting on the charged particles moving through the plasma. A subpopulation of particles can then be accelerated to energies significantly higher than the thermal energy. READ MORE
