Simulation of plasma density (top) and ionization rate (bottom), in a domain perpendicular to the magnetic field lines, extending from the plasma edge (to the left of the dotted line) and covering the SOL region outside the confined plasma (to the right of the dotted line ). It is seen how a blob about 2-3 cm outside the enclosed plasma ionizes the neutral particles before reaching the enclosed area with closed magnetic field lines.
