Conductivity of rf-heated plasma

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

71 Scopus citations


The electron velocity distribution of rf-heated plasma may be so far from Maxwellian that Spitzer conductivity no longer holds. A new conductivity for such plasmas is derived, and the result can be put in a general form. The new expression should be of practical value in examining schemes for current ramp-up in tokamaks by means of lower-hybrid or other waves.
