Project: Investigation of plasma-wall interaction phenomena through the study of flows in the edge plasma of fusion machines.

project duration
01-JAN-05 – 31-DEC-07
Peter Peleman will concentrate on the investigation of flows, temperature and densities in edge plasmas on TEXTOR (Jülich, Germany) and CASTOR (Prague) tokamak fusion machines. A new designed multi-pin probe willb e used. De probe will be mounted on a ultra-modern fast scanning manipulator which allows us to perform rotation and high resolution sweep-measurements. For ITER relevance, (International Tokamak Experiment Reactor) we will do experiments with magenetic fields with low frequency. We will concentrate on the plasma wall interactions phenomena.
