NUMERICAL MODELISATION OF RF WAVES IN THE ION CYCLOTRON RANGE OF FREQUENCY FOR TOKAMAK PLASMAS
The purpose of this paper is to present the numerical code ALCYON developed to compute the RF field structure in the ion cyclotron range of frequencies. The code handles fundamental and second harmonic heating while the mode conversion onto modes of decreasing wavelength is simulated by a selective power absorption on slow waves when their wavelength reaches the mesh size.
