Technical Paper / Plasma and Fusion Energy Physics - Edge Physics and Exhaust
The properties of the scrape-off layer (SOL) determine both the particle removal as well as the power exhaust. The particle flows in the SOL and their radial decay give constraints for the construction of the main plasma facing components, pump limiters and divertors. Both systems allow for an adequate particle and power removal option.
