Ablation of Hydrogen Pellets in Hydrogen and Helium Plasmas

    Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


    Measurements on the interaction between solid hydrogen pellets and rotating plasmas are reported. The investigations were carried out because of the possibility of refuelling fusion reactors by the injection of pellets. The ablation rate found is higher than expected on the basis of a theory of a shielding neutral gas layer.
