Abstract

The angular dependence of the flux of fast neutrals was measured in conjunction with Ion Cyclotron Range of Frequency experiments on the Princeton Large Torus. A regime was found where the energetic tail of the charge-exchange neutral flux was strongly anisotropic. Unexpectedly, however, the flux from co-going ions was peaked at an angle intermediate between perpendicular and parallel. This could be the consequence of a preferential filling of that class of banana orbits whose tips are located within the ion cyclotron resonance layer.
