Abstract

Divertor simulation study has been started as a new research plan, by making best use of a large linear plasma device. The experiment of generating the plasma flow with high heat and particle flux was successfully performed at an end-mirror exit of the GAMMA 10 tandem mirror. In typical hot-ion-mode plasmas, the heat-flux density of 0.6 MW/m2 and the particle-flux density of 1022 particles/s m2 were simultaneously achieved in the case of only ICRF heating and superimposing the 300 kW ECH pulse attained the peak value of the net heat-flux up to 8 MW/m2 on axis. The above experimental results and the simulation analysis of ICRF heating using the Fokker-Planck code give a clear prospect of generating the required performance for divertor studies by building up the plasma heating systems to the end-mirror cell. Detailed behavior of the plasma flow and the future research plan are also described.
