The 26th IAEA Fusion Energy Conference is being organized by the IAEA in cooperation with the National Institute for Fusion Science, Japan. Previous conferences in this series were held in Salzburg (), Culham (), Novosibirsk (), Madison (), Tokyo (), Berchtesgaden (), Innsbruck (), Brussels (), Baltimore (), London (), . Long-duration ELM-free QH-mode discharges have been produced with co-current NBI by using n=3 coils to generate sufficient counter-I_P torque. With electron cyclotron heating, ITER baseline discharges at beta_N=2 and scaled neutral beam injection torque have been maintained in stationary conditions for more than 4 resistive times.

Bibcode: AGUFMSH33AW Altcode: According to several theories, the beam instability induced by shock-accelerated ions can generate upstream-propagating Alfvén waves (UPAWs) with a bump near Hz in the power spectrum, while the nonlinear wave-wave interaction favors an inverse cascade to create a power-law spectrum.

These waves, having frequencies extending from the electron cyclotron frequency fce, up to the electron plasma frequency fpe, could contribute 10% to the in situ measurement of intermittent energy conversion at the DF layer. Their generation may be attributed to electron beams, which are simultaneously observed at the DF as well.

The region of bouncing electron beams in the earth’s magnetosphere can be unstable against a non-resonant electromagnetic lower hybrid instability. The instability is purely growing in the rest frame of the plasma, and can be excited either by the temperature anisotropy or the drift velocity of the bouncing electron beams.

Keywords: lower hybrid, current drive, parametric decay instability PACS: INTRODUCTION The main motivation of lower hybrid current drive (LHCD) experiments on Alcator C-Mod [1] is to actively control the current density profile to develop ITER relevant steady state regimes.

Parametric excitation of ion-ion hybrid mode by a large amplitude lower hybrid wave in a two ion species D-T plasma is investigated. The sideband lower hybrid wave, generated in the nonlinear coupling process, beats with the pump to exert a parallel ponderomotive force on electrons driving the low frequency mode.

The density perturbation associated with the latter Author: Nafis Ahmad. In present-day tokamaks, a large fraction of the plasma heating is often applied via neutral-beam injection (NBI).

Since the neutral beams are directed, they impart not only energy but also angular momentum to the plasma. This beam torque tends to drive strong toroidal rotation in the direction of the beam, as seen in the Nm profile in. Unfortunately, this book can't be printed from the OpenBook.

This book provides a concise introduction to the basic physics of radiofrequency heating. Most existing literature on the subject is at the research level, aimed at specialists in the field.

It provides a survey of theoretical and experimental results with a large number of references to help the reader wishing for more detail. A linear dispersion relation is derived. The effect of the electron beam on the pulse after the occurrence of axial bunching is examined.

Injection of axially modulated electron beams is also explored. In particular, we find that a properly phased electron beam can transfer energy to the laser pulse as an inverse process to acceleration. Full text of "DTIC ADA Naval Research Laboratory Review."
