Tungsten is commonly used as a material for plasma facing walls in nuclear fusion reactors as it can resist the typical high-temperatures and high neutron irradiation levels. As a result, impurities of highly charged tungsten ions in the plasma are inevitable. Radiation from these excited tungsten ions leads to plasma cooling. Modeling this cooling requires reliable ionization and recombination cross sections for tungsten ions. To date, most of the needed atomic data come from theory. Previously large discrepancies were found between experimental and theoretical values.

Here, we report electron-ion recombination experiments for highly charged tungsten ions, performed at the TSR storage ring in Heidelberg, Germany. Absolute experimental rate coefficients of Wq+ ions with 18 ≤ q ≤ 21 will be presented.
