Etude des effets de gaine induites par une antenne de chauffage à la fréquence cyclotronique ionique (FCI, 30-80 MHz) et de leur impact sur les mesures par sondes dans les plasmas de fusion

Abstract : This work investigates the problematic of probe measurements in RF environment. DC currents flowing along magnetic field lines connected to powered ICRF antennas have been observed experimentally. Negative (i.e. net electron) current is collected on the powered ICRF antenna structure, while positive (i.e. net ion) current is collected by magnetically connected Langmuir probes. An asymmetric model based upon a double probe configuration was developed. The ICRF near field effect is mimicked by a ?driven? RF electrode at one extremity of an "active" open magnetic flux tube, where a purely sinusoidal potential is imposed. The other connection point is maintained at ground potential to model a collecting probe. This "active" flux tube can exchange transverse RF currents with surrounding "passive" tubes, whose extremities are grounded. With simple assumptions, an analytical solution is obtained. We can thus explain how DC currents are produced from RF sheaths. This model also makes it possible to model the characteristics DC Current' DC Voltage of a probe in the presence of RF and thus to evaluate some plasma properties. In this case the electrode at ground potential (probe) is polarized at a given potential. Analytical results are found within certain limits
