    Silver will coat the carbon sphere that faces the plasma.

    Based on Layered Composite Thermal Insulation as follows:

    A highly insulated N concentric sphere setup that holds CO2 between the spaces between the concentric sphere shells will produce a radiator whose outer surface is at room temperature and its innermost shell is at 3000K.

    The innermost shell produces CO2 at 3000K. Outer shells could be made from stainless steel to save cost. CO2 cooled to room temperature returning from the turbine can flow from the outer shells to the innermost shall extracting heat from each shell layer thus cooling each shell layer progressively in turn as the flow of CO2 travels inward. Little heat energy is lost in this setup to the ambient.
