Magnum-PSI is a linear plasma generator, built at the FOM-Institute for Plasma Physics Rijnhuizen. Subject of study will be the interaction of plasma with a diversity of surface materials. The machine is designed to provide an environment with a steady state high-flux plasma (up to 10(24) H(+) ions/m(2) s) in a 3T magnetic field with an exposed surface of 80 cm(2) up to 10 MW/m(2). Magnum-PSI will provide new insights in the complex physics and chemistry that will occur in the divertor region of the future experimental fusion reactor ITER and reactors beyond ITER. The conditions at the surface of the sample can be varied over a wide range, such as plasma temperature, beam diameter, particle flux, inclination angle of the target, background pressure and magnetic field. An important subject of attention in the design of the machine was thermal effects originating in the excess heat and gas flow from the plasma source and radiation from the target.
