Abstract

Recent experiments at JET aimed at producing 4He ions in the MeV range through third harmonic ion cyclotron resonance heating (ICRH) acceleration of 4He beams in a 4He dominated plasma. MeV range D was also present through parasitic ICRH absorption on residual D. In this contribution, we analyze TOFOR neutron spectrometer data from these experiments. A consistent description of the data is obtained with d(d,n) 3He and 9Be(α,n)12C neutron components calculated using Stix distributions for the fast D and 4He, taking finite Larmor radius effects into account and with a ICRH power partition of PDRF =0.01× P4HeRF, in agreement with TOMCAT simulations. © 2010 American Institute of Physics.
