(1) Control of Plasma Heat Flow to Target Plate in Divertor Plasma Simulators.
Finding of Density Threshold for Plasma Detachment
Experimental and analytical finding of density threshold to obtain a detached plasma. The reason comes from the electron energy loss channel through the e-i energy exchange.
Clear Observation of Recombination Process in Detached Plasmas
Visible continuum as well as a series of He Balmer spectral lines shows consistently a partial local thermoequilibrium with the plasma temperature of 0.1-0.3eV for detached recombining plasmas.
Demonstration of Recombination-dependent partial Flux to the Target
Temporal change in electron temperature has been obtained by the modulated discharge current. The particle flux to the target was found to be very sensitively dependent of T_e on the recombinations rate proportional to T_e^<-4.5>.
Effect of Thermo-and Secondary Electron Emissions to Plasma Heat Flow to the Target
The suppression of the sheath voltage and the enhancement of the plasma heat flow to the target plate are clearly found due to the thermo-and secondary electron emission form the plate
