Abstract

The detailed experimental data obtained on TCA concerning the antenna loading and wave fields as a function of the Alfven Wave spectrum are presented. The plasma density, plasma current, working gas, toroidal magnetic field and frequency have all been systematically varied; and the detailed results are compiled and discussed. In addition the phasing of the antenna currents has been systematically varied, thereby exciting different combinations of modes, including pure travelling waves. The conclusions which are relevant to the design of an antenna system have been stressed.
