A REALISTIC MODEL FOR SUPRATHERMAL ELECTRON CYCLOTRON EMISSION AND ITS APPLICATION TO LH HEATED PLASMAS
The limits of the outlined method are essentially two: 1) no information is obtained about the spatial distribution of suprathermals; 2) the number of suprathermals is uncertain within a given model for wall reflections and is model dependent (while perpendicular pressure is fairly constant). Significant progress in the understanding of LH waves electrons interaction could be made in our opinion by comparing the results of our approach with data from two relatively new diagnostics: high resolution x-rays spectroscopy, which gives the density of suprathermals at some location, and vertical ECE measurements, that should give detailed information on f(p-I-I, p-perpendicular) in a restricted energy range, and, by a scan, spatial profiles.
