IDENTIFYING THE MODES OF ALFVEN WAVES
Amplitude and phase measurements with magnetic probes at various locations outside the plasma show the existence of both a discrete mode and a damped quasi-mode, always belonging to the slow m = -1 Alfven wave. The asymmetry is originated by the ion cyclotron rotation.
