Title: Electron bernstein wave excitation in NSTX-type high-{beta} plasmas

Abstract

RF waves in the electron cyclotron range of frequencies for heating fusion plasmas and for driving plasma currents have been studied. FX-B mode conversion has been modeled with a full-wave differential equation. The FX-B and te O-SX-B mode conversion processes are optimized in different regimes of frequency and parallel wavelength parameter space. (AIP) (c) 1999 American Institute of Physics.
