This paper investigates the impact of Krypton (Kr) seeding on plasma parameters in the D-module of GAMMA 10/PDX experimentally based on the calorimeter, Langmuir probe and high-speed camera measurements. The heat flux distribution along the V-shaped target plate reduces with the increasing Kr injection. The time behavior of ion flux shows that it decreases with the increase of Kr seeding. The electron temperature (Te) reduces significantly due to Kr seeding into the D-module. The electron density shows a so-called roll-over phenomenon during Kr seeding. The heat and ion fluxes reduce with the increasing Kr seeding into the D-module. Two-dimensional images captured by the high-speed camera also show that the emission intensity significantly reduces inside the V-shaped target at the higher Kr injection. These outcomes represent the impact of Kr seeding for generating the detached plasma.
