Abstract

Lower-hybrid current drive requires the generation of a high-energy electron tail anisotropic in velocity. Measurements of bremsstrahlung emission produced by this tail are compared with the calculated emission from reasonable model distributions. The physical basis and the sensitivity of this modelling process are described, and the plasma properties of current-driven discharges which can be derived from the model are discussed.
