ELECTRON CYCLOTRON EMISSION AND ABSORPTION IN FUSION PLASMAS
The state of the art in the field of electron cyclotron emission and absorption of fusion plasmas confined by a magnetic field is reviewed. The general theory is described concisely, explicit results being given mainly for plasmas in local thermodynamic equilibrium. Moreover, the practical implications of these effects with respect to cyclotron radiation losses, the use of cyclotron emission as a diagnostic tool, and electron cyclotron heating and current drive are discussed with emphasis on tokamak plasmas.
