Turbulent impurity transport in fusion plasmas
Poster (konferens), 2010
The modern fusion device is very challenging both theoretically and numerically, much owing to turbulence driven by sharp gradients in density and temperature. However, understanding the resulting transport is crucial for the success of future fusion devices such as ITER.
In this work, the turbulent transport of trace impurities in a tokamak device has been studied through quasilinear (QL) and non-linear (NL) gyrokinetic simulations using the GENE code, and with QL fluid imulations. The results are quantitative and qualitative assessments of the transport properties of several impurity species, and the dependence thereof on various plasma parameters.
