An experiment to test beryllium as a limiter material has been performed in the ISX-B tokamak. One facet of the studies centred on characterizing impurity influxes and concentrations. The radiation from both low-Z (Be, C, N, O) and intermediate-Z (Ti, Cr) contaminants was measured at the limiter surface and at a wall location 90° away from the limiter to assess the relative contributions of metallic impurities from the two different sources. The effect of limiter melting, with concomitant reduction of both low-Z and intermediate-Z elements, was also documented. The analysis, including atomic rate coefficients, for interpreting spectral radiation in terms of production rates is discussed in detail.
