Abstract

Measurements of hard X-ray and photonuclear neutron emission have shown the presence of relativistic runaway electrons during the Lower Hybrid (LH) experiments in the Frascati Tokamak (FT). The typical behaviour of these signals indicates that electrons accelerated by the DC electric field are affected by the LH waves when their energy exceeds 10 MeV. A proper mechanism to explain these results has been found by using quasilinear theory for the Anomalous Doppler Resonance between the fast runaway electrons and the primary LH waves.
