Abstract

The main features of ICRF heating of reactor size plasmas are reviewed in the light of recent experimental results obtained on JET. The technology of ICRF appears well adapted to the effective launching of RF power and energy by units of several megawatts (3 MW in JET) and tens of megajoules (10 MJ in JET). On the physics point of view, JET has demonstrated the possibility of local power deposition which was theoretically expected from the RF propagation theory in large tokamaks. This property opens the way to new applications of ICRF in reactor scenarios. In particular, the possibility of ICRF current drive is explored.
