Technical Paper / Open Magnetic Systems for Plasma Confinement
Transverse losses from hot dense plasma were studied on the GOL-3 facility. Concentration of impurities, effective charge of ions in plasma, line radiation power and charge exchange loses were found from spectroscopic measurements in VUV and visible spectral regions. Estimation of effective charge of ion required for comparison of measurements and predictions of global confinement time was derived from the measurements of impurities concentration.
