WEGA the Test-Bed for new High Frequency Heating Methods
Research report (imported) 2010 - Max-Planck-Institut für Plasmaphysik
WEGA is a classical stellarator, which is operated at the Max-Planck-Institut für Plasmaphysik in Greifswald for educational training and basic research. New methods on the application of high frequency wave excitation, propagation and absorption at different frequencies are studied. For example a stationary plasma state was achieved which is characterized by a very high density and simultaneously a highly supra-thermal electron component.
