Collisional-Radiative Modeling for Highly-Charged Ions of Tungsten



Yuri Ralchenko


We present an overview of the recent advances in collisional-radiative modeling of highly-charged ions of tungsten that are relevant to fusion research. The status of spectroscopic data for W ions is briefly discussed as well. Strategies and peculiarities of building models for Maxwellian fusion plasmas and non-Maxwellian plasmas of electron beam ion traps are outlined. Comparisons with the measured x-ray and extreme ultraviolet spectra are also given.
