Role of trapped and circulating particles in inducing current drive and radial electric field by Alfven waves in tokamaks
2002 (English)In: Journal of Plasma Physics, ISSN 0022-3778, E-ISSN 1469-7807, Vol. 67, 301-308 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Absorption by trapped particles is supposed to seriously hinder current drive by Alfven waves. However, it is shown in this paper that the same effect is rather beneficial for the emergence of the radial electric field induced by these waves, which is important for creating and maintaining transport barriers in tokamaks.
