The development of noninductive current drive is of great importance in establishing the tokamak as a long-pulse or steady-state fusion reactor. Lower hybrid waves, carrying 200 kW of power at 800 MHz, have been launched into the Princeton Large Torus tokamak to initiate and drive the discharge current to a level in excess of 100 kA. © 1984 The American Physical Society.
