Electron Bernstein waves (EBW) are suitable for heating, current drive, and radiation temperature measurements of overdense plasma, ωpe>>ωce , in spherical torus devices. In NSTX, design of a multi-megawatt EBW current drive system is supported by experimental measurements and computations of obliquely viewing, dual-polarization EBW emission (EBE)(More)
National Spherical Torus Experiment (NSTX) is a spherical tokamak (ST) that operates with n(e) up to 10(20) m(-3) and B(T) less than 0.6 T, cutting off low harmonic electron cyclotron (EC) emission widely used for T(e) measurements on conventional aspect ratio tokamaks. The electron Bernstein wave (EBW) can propagate in ST plasmas and is emitted at EC(More)
COMPASS tokamak shots at low magnetic field feature overdense plasmas during the extended current flat-top phase. The first harmonic of the electron cyclotron emission is completely cutoff for O and X modes and so the emission caused by electron Bernstein waves (EBWs) propagating obliquely with respect to the magnetic field and undergoing so called EBW-X-O(More)
The COMPASS tokamak recently started operation at the Institute of Plasma Physics AS CR, v.v.i., Prague. A new 16-channel radiometer, operating alternatively in three frequency bands, has been designed and constructed. The system is prepared for detection of normal electron cyclotron emission (O1 or X2) or oblique electron Bernstein wave emission. The(More)

The first experimental verification of electron Bernstein wave (EBW) collisional damping, and its mitigation by evaporated Li conditioning, in an overdense spherical-tokamak plasma has been observed in the National Spherical Torus Experiment (NSTX). Initial measurements of EBW emission, coupled from NSTX plasmas via double-mode conversion to O-mode waves,(More)
In conventional aspect-ratio tokamaks, electron cyclotron (EC) waves can provide local heating and current drive. However, the high-β spherical tokamak (ST) plasma conditions cut off propagation of EC waves. The electron Bernstein wave (EBW) does not experience a density cut off and is strongly absorbed and emitted at the EC harmonics, allowing EBWCD to be(More)
The AMR (Antenna—Mode-conversion—Ray-tracing) code [1, 2] has been recently coupled with the LUKE [3] Fokker-Planck code. This modeling suite is capable of complex simulations of electron Bernstein wave (EBW) emission, heating and current drive. We employ these codes to study EBW heating and current drive performance under spherical tokamak (ST)(More)
