Abstract

The extent to which nonlinear wave-particle resonance broadening results in a narrowing of an incident lower-hybrid wave spectrum is investigated. This narrowing is of concern because it could make control of lower-hybrid heating difficult. It is shown numerically, however, that relatively uniform spatial power deposition occurs if resonance broadening effects are treated consistently on both the wave spectrum and the particle distribution.
