Title: Iso-nuclear tungsten dielectronic recombination rates for use in magnetically-confined fusion plasmas

Abstract

Under the auspices of the IAEA Atomic and Molecular Data Center and the Korean Atomic Energy Research Institute, our assembled group of authors has reviewed the current state of dielectronic recombination (DR) rate coefficients for various ion stages of tungsten (W). Subsequent recommendations were based upon available experimental data, first-principle calculations carried out in support of this paper and from available recombination data within existing atomic databases. If a recommendation was possible, data were compiled, evaluated and fitted to a functional form with associated uncertainty information retained, where available. In conclusion, this paper also considers the variation of the W fractional abundance due to the underlying atomic data when employing different data sets.
