POWER DEPENDENCE OF ELECTRON CYCLOTRON WAVE DAMPING IN TOKAMAK PLASMAS
The power dependence of the wave damping in a tokamak plasma for arbitrary direction of propagation, mode of polarization, and wave frequency is investigated. Using a 2-D Fokker-Planck code, it is shown that the wave damping increases or decreases with the rf power depending on the velocity range of the absorbing electrons.
