Particle orbit simulations: ASCOT

ASCOT (Accelerated Simulation of Charged Particle Orbits in Toroidal devices) is a Monte Carlo orbit-following code developed in collaboration with VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland since 1991.

ASCOT simulation of ITER fusion alpha wall loads in fully 3D geometry.

ASCOT has been applied to numerous problems from studies of relativistic reverse runaway electrons and LH/IC heating/current drive to orbit loss and wall/divertor loading studies and simulations of CX diagnostics in the presence of magnetic field ripple. With the capability to use a fully three-dimensional magnetic equilibrium and first wall, ASCOT is an established tool of European fusion research.
