WAVE STUDIES IN THE SCRAPE-OFF LAYER OF TCA DURING ALFVEN WAVE HEATING
The present study shows that the antenna used for auxiliary heating excites electrostatic waves in the scrape-off layer. At present state identification of the launched wave has not been possible. Also, the wave excitation mechanism and possible nonlinear processes have to be studied in future. Low frequency fluctuations are strongly affected by the rf. The high level spikes found on the potential fluctuations may play a key role in antenna - plasma interaction, for example in impurity generation.
