Abstract

A linear long magnetised plasma device has been developed for the study of wave-particle interactions. The device uses a newly designed vaporising and ionising assembly as a plasma source. Linear behaviour of electrostatic waves is investigated using a non-perturbative diagnostic technique, laser induced fluorescence (LIF). Experiments on nonlinear wave behaviour are described; particle diffusion is measured along and across the plasma; in particular, stochastic ion heating and diffusion are investigated. A threshold of intrinsic stochastic ion heating has been determined.
