Eisenhower’s “Atoms for Peace” at 70
Seventy years ago to the day, President Dwight D. Eisenhower gave his historic address to the United Nations General Assembly in New York City. (See December 2023 Nuclear News's “Leaders” column to read the reflections of Kathryn Huff, the Department of Energy’s assistant secretary for nuclear energy, on the speech’s anniversary.)

The current-drive technique, using lower hybrid waves (LHWs) for radio-frequency heating, is of highest priority on EAST, and over 100 s steady-state long-pulse H-mode plasmas have been achieved recently. The suprathermal electrons driven by LHWs make the interpretation of electron cyclotron emission (ECE) spectrum complex. This paper presents the preliminary results of a synthetic diagnostic for interpreting the ECE measurement results in both ohmic and LHW-heated plasmas on EAST. The synthetic diagnostic is realized by using the simulation code SPECE. The agreement between the simulations and experimental results is fairly good for the ohmic cases. For the LHW case, the simulations don’t agree well enough with the measurements.
