toroidal divertormedical dictionary

<radiobiology> Divertor created by extracting toroidal field field lines at some point, forming an external loop outside the torus. Has the disadvantages that it breaks the axial symmetry of the torus, which converts a relatively simple, mostly 2-dimensional geometry to a comples 3-dimensional geometry. For an illustration refer to page 135 of Gross (reference 4).
