 Title: Saturation of Alfven modes in tokamaks Contributors: White, RGorelenkov, N.Gorelenkova, M.Podesta, M.Ethier, S.Chen, Y.U. S. Department of Energy contract number DE-AC02-09CH11466 Keywords: TAE modesSaturation Issue Date: Nov-2016 Publisher: Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory, Princeton University Related Publication: Plasma Physics and Controlled Fusion, Vol. 58, page 115007 (November 2016) Abstract: Growth of Alfven modes driven unstable by a distribution of high energy particles up to saturation is investigated with a guiding center code, using numerical eigenfunctions produced by linear theory and a numerical high energy particle distribution, in order to make detailed comparison with experiment and with models for saturation amplitudes and the modification of beam profiles. Two innovations are introduced. First, a very noise free means of obtaining the mode-particle energy and momentum transfer is introduced, and secondly, a spline representation of the actual beam particle distribution is used.
