    Abstract

    The plasma facing components in ITER will be constructed using Tungsten. Sputtering of plasma against these walls introduces Tungsten impurities into the plasma, possibly causing quenching. As data for Tungsten in the relevant charge states is historically poor, this project aims to calculate this data, providing partial and total Dielectronic/Radiative Recombination rates for use in collisional-radiative modelling of the ITER plasma.
