The Generation of Current in Tokamaks by the Absorption of Waves in the Electron Cyclotron Frequency Range

Abstract

The theory of current generation due to the absorption of high-frequency waves is developed for the case in which the propagation of the waves is described in the geometrical optics approximation. An expression for the current generated is obtained which is similar in fornn to the expression for the rate of energy deposition. This expression is incorporated… (More)
