Abstract

Electron currents can be driven in a linear plasma by the absorption of lower-hybrid waves excited primarily in one direction. Current-drive has been demonstrated both for collisional and resonant-electron absorption. The magnitude of the excited current is compared with the predictions from an electron kinetic equation with a Lorentz collision operator in the regime k ∥vte/ω ≪1. © 1981 American Institute of Physics.
