The modelling of a modern fusion device is very challenging both theoretically and numerically, much owing to turbulence driven by sharp gradients in density and temperature. However, understanding the resulting transport is crucial for the success of future fusion devices such as ITER. In this work, the turbulent transport of trace impurities in a tokamak device has been studied through quasilinear (QL) and non-linear (NL) gyrokinetic simulations using the GENE code. The parameters are chosen for trapped electron (TE) mode turbulence, driven primarily by steep electron density gradients relevant to H-mode physics, but with a transition to temperature gradient driven turbulence as the density gradient flattens. The results are quantitative assessments of the transport properties of several impurity species, and the dependence thereof on various plasma parameters.
