Abstract

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.
