Polychromatic, multi-frequency, ion cyclotron resonance heating provide a useful tool for the optimization of plasma performance in fusion devices by tailoring the fast ion distribution function. Not only can the radial profile of the fast ion distributions be modified, but also the fast energy content, the power partition on resonant species and the bulk plasma ion- and electron heating rates. This work describes finite orbit effects of polychromatic ICRH which are demonstrated using the SELFO code.
