Paper Abstract

The basic concept of plasma confinement in tokamaks is discussed and illustrEtions of the typical temperatures and densities that can be obtained are presented. The roles of impurities both as sources of power losses and as plasma diagnostics are emphasized. Particular attention is paid to the analysis of spectral data to obtain impurity concentrations, the deleterious effects of heavy metals, forbidden transitions, and spectral excitation by charge echange reactions.
