ELECTRON CYCLOTRON ABSORPTION IN A MIRROR CONFINED PLASMA
In mirror machines, electron populations, characterized by non-Maxwellian distribution functions, are likely to be found due to the spatially inhomogeneous magnetic field or to specific longitudinal potential profiles created. When an RF field is applied the problem arises of the modification of their dispersive properties. With this problem in mind, we restrict our analysis to the case of electron cyclotron (EC) waves, both ordinary (OM) and extraordinary (XM) modes, injected into a non- Maxwellian plasma.
