Title: Kinetic solution of the sheath region in a fusion reactor

Abstract

The sheath region in a fusion reactor is studied with a one-dimensional kinetic code. The sheath potential, heat transmission, and sputtering of the boundary are all quite sensitive to electron re-emission. The expected heat and particle fluxes in future fusion reactors leads to a prediction of keV-edge temperatures.
