Particle confinement times in present day controlled fusion devices are typically less than a tenth of the discharges’ duration, and this fraction will decrease in future machines with larger discharge times. Thus it is important to study the mechanism of the recycling of neutral atoms and molecules formed as plasma ions strike device walls at the plasma edge.
