Title: DIII-D radiative divertor project, status and plans

Abstract

New divertor hardware is being designed and fabricated for the Radiative Divertor modification of the DIII-D tokamak. The installation of the hardware has been separated into two phases, the first phase starting in October of 1996 and the and second final phase, in 1988. When completed, the Radiative Divertor Project hardware will provide pumping at all four strike points of a double-null, high triangularity discharge and provide baffling of the neutral particles from transport back to the core plasma. Radiative Divertor diagnostics are being designed to provide comprehensive measurements for diagnosing the divertor. Minimal modifications are required to diagnostics for the Phase I installation. More extensive diagnostic changes are planned for the Phase 2 installation. 3 refs., 6 figs.
