Abstract

We report on the first observations of density fluctuations at the resonant layer during Alfven Wave heating in a tokamak. Whereas loading and external magnetic probe measurements show excellent agreement effects with the cold plasma model of the Shear Alfven Wave if finite w/w-ci effects and toroidal coupling are taken into account, these new observations demonstrate the importance of kinetic effects.
