Measurements of Electron Cyclotron Emission From Non-Maxwellian Electron Distribution in TCV Plasmas With ECH and ECCD
Electron Cyclotron Emission (ECE) measurements from the high field side (HFS) of the TCV tokamak have been obtained from plasmas heated by second and third harmonic X-mode ECH and ECCD. Supra-thermal ECE is detected in the presence of X2 ECCD and of X3 ECH. The ECE temperature increases sharply with the toroidal launch angle of the X2 EC power with a maximum observed at +/- 20 degrees, The results are modelled using the bi-Maxwellian approximation.
