Abstract [en]

A qualitative analysis of second harmonic heating is carried out, in which a fast magnetosonic wave is launched from a location near the magnetic mirror (where the magnetic field is stronger than the second harmonic resonance field) and directed to the midplane of the open trap. The analysis shows that there is no "magnetic beach" heating in contrast to the case with minority heating on the fundamental harmonic. Conversion to the ion Bernstein wave would distort the heating pattern, and the condition for this conversion is estimated. The scenario of second harmonic heavy ion heating is examined numerically. In the scenario chosen, the regime of global resonance overlapping is achieved that provides good heating performance. The computations show that the power deposition is core, the amount of deposited power does not depend sensitively on the parameters of the discharge, and the range of plasma beta at which the heating is efficient is not narrow. The estimated antenna Q is noticeably low and, therefore, the antenna performance is high.
