Abstract

Recent results from the Alfven Wave Heating experiments (2.5 MHz) on the TCA Tokamak show extremely strong sawtooth activity above the AW continuum thresholds. The power deposition profile to the electrons appears to be very peaked in these conditions. Below dominant AW thresholds, we have measured anomalously strong increases in ion temperature, reaching 17 x 10**13 eV/kWcm**3.
