- The flow rate of neutral carbon atoms during the initial startup phase of an ohmically heated plasma in the FM-1 spherator was determined from the spatially resolved measurements of the carbon line radiation and independent measurements of spatial distribution of plasma density and electron temperature. This was accomplished by comparing the measured carbon line intensity with a numerical solution of time-dependent coupled differential rate equations for several carbon ionization states. The empirical flow rate of carbon atoms into the discharge, GAMMA/sub flow/(t), was found to be GAMMA/sub flow/(t) approximately equal to n/sub e/(t)/ tau/sub flow/, where tau/sub flow/ was 30-100 msec depending upon discharge conditions.
