MEASUREMENT OF THE CURRENT DISTRIBUTION IN ASDEX DURING LOWER HYBRID CURRENT DRIVE USING THE LI BEAM - ZEEMAN EFFECT TECHNIQUE
Results are presented for an exploratory investigation into the behavior of the current density distribution during LH current drive. Indications are that the current profile broadens slightly, in contrast to a peaking of the electron temperature profile, thereby implying that the RF driven current is not strictly coupled to Spitzer conductivity.
