Atomic and Plasma–Material Interaction Data for Fusion
Atomic and Plasma–Material Interaction Data for Fusion  13
Fusion Plasma diagnostics is a complex problem requiring many different types of atomic and molecular (A+M) data. The typical plasmas in fusion research naturally divide into a core region and an edge/divertor region, and the physical conditions differ significantly between these two regions. The importance of generating new data for support of diagnostics in fusion plasmas led to a strong recommendation at the 12th meeting of the A+M Subcommittee of the International Fusion Research Council in May 2000 to initiate a Coordinated Research Project (CRP) to address data needs in this area. This CRP was completed in 2005 and this publication is the collected research papers produced by the project participants. During the course of the CRP new data were generated for a variety of processes impacting on a number of diagnostic procedures for fusion plasmas: spectral observations near the strike zone and divertor (where alpha particles interact with molecules) require a variety of cross-section data that have been measured and calculated during the current work programme; helium beam diagnostics from fast to thermal require crosssection data for both electron and proton impact, that have been generated during the current work programme; data have been produced for use in the determination of species from light elements such as helium, boron and hydrocarbons, as well as heavy elements such as tungsten; large amounts of data on spectral properties were generated to assist in the spectral analysis of plasma emissions; X-ray emissions from impact on surfaces have been studied and quantified; data have been generated for use in hydrogen charge exchange spectroscopy for the determination of the flow and temperature of impurities in the divertor region. It is expected that this publication will prove useful to both experimentalists and theoreticians working in the area of fusion plasma diagnostics.
