Detachment, an important mechanism for reducing target heat deposition, is achieved through reductions in power, particle and momentum; which are induced through plasma-atom and plasma-molecule interactions. Experimental research in how those reactions precisely contribute to detachment is limited. In this work, we investigate a new spectroscopic technique to utilise Hydrogen Balmer line measurements to 1) disentangle the Balmer line emission from the various plasma-atom and plasma-molecule… 
A study of the influence of plasma-molecule interactions on particle balance during detachment
In this work we provide experimental insights into the impact of plasma-molecule interactions on the target ion flux decrease during divertor detachment achieved through a core density ramp in the
The role of plasma-molecule interactions on power and particle balance during detachment on the TCV tokamak
This paper shows experimental results from the TCV tokamak that indicate plasma-molecule interactions involving D2+ and possibly D− play an important role as sinks of energy (through hydrogenic
Inference of molecular divertor density from filtered camera analysis of molecularly induced Balmer line emission during detachment in JET L-mode plasmas
A previously presented Monte Carlo method for estimating local plasma conditions in 2D based on intensity ratios of deuterium Balmer D α , D γ and D ɛ lines was amended to consider also the D α and D
