Abstract

A self-contained gas injection system for the Divertor Material Evaluation System (DiMES) on DIII-D, the porous plug injector (PPI), has been employed for in situ study of chemical erosion in the tokamak divertor environment by injection of CH4 [A.G. McLean et al., these Proceedings]. A new interpretive code, 3D-DIVIMP-HC, has been developed and applied to the interpretation of the CH, CI, and CII emissions. Particular emphasis is placed on the interpretation of 2D filtered-camera (TV) pictures in CH, CI and CII light taken from a view essentially straight down on the PPI. The code replicates sufficient measurements to conclude that most of the basic elements of the controlling physics and chemistry have been identified and incorporated in the code-model.
