Teaching content

This lecture is an introduction to SOL (scrape-off layer) and divertor plasma transport in the magnetic fusion devices. The roles of SOL/divertor plasma, the control of heat, particle and impurity transport, are lectured. Especially, the emphasis is put on the basic physics of the plasma transport as well as on the history of divertor concept development. The recent results from LHD with interpretation in terms of transport modelling are also presented.
