Atomic and Molecular Data for State-Resolved Modelling of Hydrogen and Helium and Their Isotopes in Fusion Plasma

The primary plasma constituents of most magnetic confinement fusion experiments are hydrogen and helium and their isotopes. In the divertor and near-wall region of the reactors used in such experiments these species are present in a wide range of ionic and molecular forms, with a large number of excited states possible.

This CRP assisted in the goal of achieving a complete description of the plasma processes occuring in this region by evaluating and generating fundamental atomic and molecular data and assembling it in a numerical database.
