An application of electron-cyclotron heating with an off-axis resonance location produces a cylindrical layer with energetic electrons and facilitates the formation for a profile of plasma rotation with a radially localized high-vorticity layer. These phenomena are detected by several types of end-loss ions-and electrons-analyser. Formation of radial transport barrier has been observed in the vicinity of the high-vorticity layer in GAMMA 10.
