Using a 2 MW 2.45 GHz lower hybrid wave (LHW) system installed in experimental advanced superconducting tokamak, we have systematically carried out LHW-plasma coupling and lower hybrid current drive experiments in both divertor (double null and lower single null) and limiter plasma configuration with plasma current (Ip) ∼ 250 kA and central line averaged density (ne) ∼ 1.0–1.3 × 1019 m−3 recently. Results show that the reflection coefficient (RC) first is flat up to some distance between plasma… CONTINUE READING
