Dynamic evolution of high frequency heated plasmas and response to periodic heating

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The dynamics of a fusion plasma, exposed to high frequency heating, is considered. The global evolution in time of the system is studied, assuming mixed contributions of temperature-gradient driven drift-wave turbulence ∼T3/2and resistive ballooning mode turbulence ∼T-1/2in the transport coefficients. The dynamic response of the HF heated plasma to periodic variations in the heating is investigated and possibilities for diagnostic applications are suggested.
