Title: Core tungsten radiation diagnostic calibration by small shell pellet injection in the DIII-D tokamak

Abstract

Injection of small (OD = 0.8 mm) plastic pellets carrying embedded smaller (10 μg) tungsten grains is used to check calibrations of core tungsten line radiation diagnostics in support of the 2016 tungsten rings campaign in the DIII-D tokamak. The total (1 eV – 10 keV) and soft x-ray (1 keV – 10 keV) brightnesses we observed were found to be reasonably well (< factor 2) predicted using existing calibration factors and rate calculations. Individual core (EUV/SXR) tungsten line brightnesses appear to be somewhat less reliable (factor 2-4) for prediction of core tungsten concentration.
