Highly Ionized Atoms in Tokamak Discharges

Part of the NATO Advanced Science Institutes Series book series (NSSB, volume 96)


Tokamaks, stellarators and related plasma confinement devices have existed in a fruitful and yet usually precarious symbiosis with atomic physics. In principle, the only atoms involved in such plasmas are those of hydrogen isotopes, and perhaps eventually helium, but in practice this has not been the case. Other elements have intruded in a variety of ways mostly unexpected, and they have been blamed, usually unjustly, for practically every ailment besetting the plasmas.
