Executive Summary

We are using key spectroscopic and modeling capabilities to understand the physical processes of an operating regime relevant to the removal of waste material from a plasma for future magnetic fusion power reactors. This regime, which is characterized by reduced power and plasma flux, is regarded as a promising solution for heat exhaust in the context of nuclear fusion.
