The Tore Supra long-pulse lower hybrid (LH) system was coupled up to 6.5 MW at 3.7 GHz through 2 multijunction launchers, and power densities of 24 MW/m{2} were achieved during 75 seconds. Successful experiments on high-power wave coupling at distances up to 15 cm from the plasma have provided new potentialities concerning far-distance coupling in a reactor environment.
Progress in the understanding and modelling of LH power deposition profiles are reported, and possible applications of LHCD in near-term fusion research are mentioned.
