Radiative Instabilities in the Tokamak Scrape-Off Layer During Edge-Localized Mode Activity

Abstract

In order to reduce the heat flux entering the divertor, it is desirable to have strong impurity radiation in the scrape-off layer (SOL) of reactor-size tokamaks like the International however, the SOL plasma is likely to be unstable to the radiative condensation instability. In the present paper, an investigation is undertaken to study the effects of edge… (More)
