The work of the ITPA SOL/divertor group is reviewed and implications for ITER discussed. Studies of near SOL gradients have revealed a connection to underlying turbulence models. Analysis of a multi-machine database shows that parallel conduction gradients near the separatrix scale as major radius. New SOL measurements have implicated low-field side(More)
The paper describes the results of a physics analysis of a modified divertor cassette for ITER. The issues addressed are the impact on the operational window, the effect of gas leaks through the broader gaps between the divertor cassettes, and radiation power loading of different components of the cassettes. The radiation load on the side walls of the(More)
