OBSERVATION OF DENSITY FLUCTUATIONS LOCALIZED AT THE RESONANCE LAYER DURING ALFVEN WAVE HEATING
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.
