Abstract (englisch):

In this paper, the plasma volume averaged impurity confinement of selected charge states and impurity species has been characterized for the Stellarator Wendelstein 7-X (W7-X), covering a wide range of atomic charges (Z=12–44) and atomic masses (M=28–184). A comparison of the experimental findings to theoretical neoclassical and turbulent transport expectations suggests, aside from/in addition to the neoclassical transport, an additional significant anomalous transport mechanism, which is not inconsistent with the predictions of a turbulence dominated impurity transport and is in agreement with the experimental results from recent transport studies based on the direct measurements of impurity diffusion profiles, performed at W7-X.
