Abstract

This paper reviews the experimental status and recent advances in Alfven Wave Heating (AWH). We discuss the underlying physics of Alfven Wave Heating, as seen by the experiments. The use of Alfven Waves for plasma diagnosis is discussed. The results of plasma heating on TCA are summarized. Apparent changes in the current profile are inferred, caused by changes in the evolving Alfven wave spectrum excited. The implications for AWH on larger devices are mentioned.
