Abstract

Coupling experiments, using a gas feed near the lower hybrid current drive (LHCD) launcher, have been carried out in JET. An improvement in coupling for a given plasma - launcher distance can be obtained when the gas flow is large enough. During these experiments, modification of the wall recycling was observed and the relation with the observed improvement in coupling is presented.
