Tritium transport studies with use of the ISEP NPA during tritium trace experimental campaign on JET
Research output: Contribution to journal › Article
The neutral particle analyzer (NPA) known as ISEP (Ion SEParator)was applied to measure the tritium neutral flux during the tritium trace experiment (TTE) on JET. The energy dependence (in the 5-28 keV energy range) of the tritium neutral flux rise time after a short ∼100 ms tritium gas puff into deuterium plasmas has been observed for the first time. The dependence has been interpreted as being due to the penetration of the tritium ions from the plasma boundary into the core and has been used for the calculation of the tritium diffusion coefficient and convective velocity values.
