Recent experimental results and modeling of RF heating of ( 3 He )‐D JET plasmas: RF as a tool to study transport

Author

Abstract
D plasmas with He-3 minorities have sharp, thin ion-ion hybrid layers that enable to efficiently excite short wavelength branches that are subsequently damped by fairly well localized electron Landau and TTMP absorption. Depending on the minority concentration chosen, ion minority heating or electron mode conversion damping is dominant. Recent experiments have been devoted to the study of (He-3)-D JET plasmas. One aspect of those experiments - using RF heating as a tool - is the study of the response of the plasma to RF power modulation, allowing to examine the fate of the RF power and to diagnose particle and energy transport The present paper gives a very brief summary of a subset of these experiments. The focus will largely but not exclusively be on understanding ITB physics. The adopted probing methods are more generally applicable, though.
