On the dynamics of Alfvén eigenmode excitation
2006 (English)In: EPS Conference on Plasma Physics 2006, EPS 2006, 2006, 1796-1799 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
Alfvén eigenmodes (AEs) excited by fast ions can cause losses of fast ions in thermonuclear experiments. To describe the dynamics of the AE excitation, it is necessary to include the decorrelation of the AE interactions and the renewal of the distribution function in the unstable regions on time scales that are short compared to the decorrelation time. For simulation of AE excitation for finite decorrelation times, a Monte Carlo operator describing the phase decorrelation between ions and AEs has been developed for implementation in the SELFO code.
