Abstract

TOZAWA, L. M.  and  ZIEBELL, L. F.. Stochastic diffusion of energetic ions due to lower hybrid waves. Braz. J. Phys. [online]. 1998, vol.28, n.3, pp. 211-221. ISSN 0103-9733.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0103-97331998000300006.

This paper discusses the interaction between energetic ions and lower hybrid waves in tokamak plasmas, presenting a numerical analysis which employs a quasilinear formalism appropriated for the situation in which ion stochastic diffusion occurs. The results show that significant wave-particle interaction may take place when a population of energetic ions in present in the plasma, in partial agreement with evidence from experimental results available in the literature.
