Abstract

Deuterium plasmas with a current of 1 MA, having quasi-stationary conditions for one minute, were obtained in Tore Supra, a large superconducting tokamak. The plasma current was partially non-inductively driven by a 2.5 MW, 62 s lower hybrid wave pulse, resulting in a high central electron temperature (5.5 keV) for a plasma with a central electron density of 3.5 x 1.0 E19/m3.
