Study of the change of electron temperature inside magnetic island caused by localized radio frequency heating
Phys. Plasmas 17, 052309 (2010)
The change in the electron temperature inside magnetic island caused by localized radio frequency (rf) heating is studied numerically by solving the two-dimensional energy transport equation, to investigate the dependence of the temperature change on the location and width of the rf power deposition along the minor radius and the helical angle, the island width, and the ratio between the parallel and the perpendicular heat conductivity. Based on obtained numerical results, suggestions for optimizing the island stabilization by localized rf heating are made.

The shielding of a charge sheet in a magnetized plasma is investigated by taking account of the diamagnetic drift start-up current in addition to the polarization current. For a charge sheet with an infinitesimal width, the shielding is the same as the conventional Debye shielding if the charge sheet is perpendicular to the magnetic field; the shielding length is times larger than the conventional one if the charge sheet is parallel to the magnetic field. When the scale length of the charge sheet is comparable or smaller than the ion Larmor radius, the electric field is significantly enhanced within the charge sheet, while far away from the charge sheet, the electric field is shielded to the usual 1/εr level (where εr is the diamagnetic coefficient of the magnetized plasma).
