Fusion Science and Technology / Volume 57 / Number 2T / February 2010 / Pages 214-221

Heating and Current Drive / Proceedings of the Ninth Carolus Magnus Summer School on Plasma and Fusion Energy Physics

This lecture gives an overview of heating and current drive with electron cyclotron waves. We present the main theoretical aspects of wave propagation, wave absorption, and non-inductive current drive, as well as important technical aspects for the application of high power electron cyclotron waves, and the major achievements in their experimental application.
