Abstract

During the first six months of 1985 the four types of different RF antenna configurations were tested on JET. The antenna performance in terms of coupling efficiency and plasma heating was investigated. In this paper we present the results on plasma - antenna coupling and also discuss the modification of scrape-off layer by RF power. The coupling resistance was measured as a function of plasma - antenna distance at different plasma densities, magnetic fields, frequencies and power levels. The experiments were performed in a deuterium plasma with Helium and Hydrogen gas as minority species. The resonances of RF field in the toroidal cavity were observed when the minority concentration was varied. The maximum power delivered to the transmission line, when operating both antennae was 5.5 MW.
