    • A new ion cyclotron range of frequency scenario for bulk ion heating in deuterium-tritium plasmas: How to utilize intrinsic impurities in our favour 

      Kazakov, Ye O.; Ongena, Jozef; Van Eester, Dirk; Bilato, Roberto; Dumont, Rémi J.; Lerche, Ernesto A.; Mantsinen, Mervi; Messiaen, André M. (American Institute of Physics Publising LLC, 2015-08-24)
      Article
      Open Access
      A fusion reactor requires plasma pre-heating before the rate of deuterium-tritium fusion reactions becomes significant. In ITER, radiofrequency (RF) heating of He ions, additionally puffed into the plasma, is one of the ...
