Ignitor is a tokamak project aimed at achieving ignition. In the reference scenario, plasma-surface interactions are controlled by a Mo first-wall/limiter, which constitutes a simple engineering solution but, at the same time, a special challenge for edge plasma modelling. Here the ASPOEL plasma fluid code, already applied to Ignitor in the recent past, is coupled with the neutral Monte Carlo code EIRENE. We study the effects of the neutrals on the plasma density and temperature profiles in the Ignitor scrape-off layer, and compute the particle and heat loads onto the Ignitor first-wall limiter.

Abstract

Ignitor is a tokamak project aimed at achieving ignition. In the reference scenario, plasma-surface interactions are controlled by a Mo first-wall/limiter, which constitutes a simple engineering solution but, at the same time, a special challenge for edge plasma modelling. Here the ASPOEL plasma fluid code, already applied to Ignitor in the recent past, is coupled with the neutral Monte Carlo code EIRENE. We study the effects of the neutrals on the plasma density and temperature profiles in the Ignitor scrape-off layer, and compute the particle and heat loads onto the Ignitor first-wall limiter.
