Abstract

It has been observed in TEXTOR that in low density discharges the electrons gain enough energy to emit relativistic synchrotron radiation in the 3-6 micro-m IR-range. This radiation is due to electrons with energies up to 30 MeV. The momentum in the perpendicular direction amounts to about 1/10 of the longitudinal one. The total number of runaways is of the order of 1.0 E16 electrons, and they carry a current of about 20% of the total plasma current.
