Radio Frequency Power in Plasmas: 12th Topical Conference (AIP Conference Proceedings)

This topical conference addresses the use of radio frequency fields for plasma heating, current drive, and MHD control in plasmas. The launching, propagation, mode conversion, and absorption of radio frequency energy in various frequency ranges (Alfven to electron cyclotron) are treated in relation to heating, confinement, plasma production, plasma properties, and current generation. Topics also include basic rf wave physics, rf plasma sources for material processing, and rf technology issues.
