Research Field
1.Divertor plasma simulation.
Develop particle simulation code Edge Plasma Particle-In-Cell (EPPIC1D&2D) to simulate the plasma sheath in the divertor region including divertor gap. The plasma surface interactions (PSI, mainly the erosion processes) have also been investigated.

2.SOL plasma simulation.
Simulate the DSOL plasma using Scrape-Off Layer Plasma Simulation (SOLPS) code package. The investigation concentrations are the plasma transport during ELMy H-mode, the divertor in-out asymmetry, and their effects to the divertor target (resulting erosion, fuel retention etc.).

3.Fuel retention inside the plasma-facing wall.
To estimate the fuel retention inside the plasma-facing wall (PFW), a rate-theory based code called Hydrogen Isotope Inventory Processes Code (HIIPC1D&2D) has been developed. HIIPC has been applied to simulate the fuel retention in the mixed materials, in the tungsten gap tiles, bubble growth during plasma irradiation and retention during ELMy H-mode etc.
