Enhanced heat flux in the scrape-off layer due to electrons accelerated in the near field of lower hybrid grills
As a result of experimental observations of localized heat flux on components magnetically connected to radiating waveguides in Tore Supra and in TdeV, the acceleration of electrons near lower hybrid (LH) antennas has been investigated. A simple analytical model has been developed to compute the dynamics of the particles in the near field approximation. Model results and the results of experiments in Tore Supra and TdeV are compared.
