Technical Paper / Plasma and Fusion Energy Physics - Plasma Heating and Current Drive /

This lecture gives an overview of heating and current drive with electron cyclotron waves. We will deal not only with the main theoretical aspects of wave propagation, wave absorption, and non-inductive current drive, but also will discuss some of the important technical aspects for the application of high power electron cyclotron waves and some of the major experimental achievements that have been obtained with electron cyclotron waves.
