Abstract

Suppression of the radial transport of the particles caused by low-frequency density fluctuations is one of the important subjects in the GAMMA10 tandem mirror. In GAMMA10, plasmas are mainly produced and heated with Ion Cyclotron Range of Frequency (ICRF) waves. The plasmas heated with ICRF waves have strong temperature anisotropy, because the ions are accelerated perpendicularly to the magnetic field line. In the GAMMA10 experiments, two types of low-frequency density fluctuations are observed; one is a drift-type fluctuation and the other is a flute-type fluctuation. In this paper, we study the radial transport of ICRF-produced high-energy ions which is caused by the low-frequency density fluctuations.
