Electron Cyclotron Heating

US Contribution:

The US is responsible for the electron cyclotron (EC) transmission lines, including R&D, design and fabrication. The electron cyclotron system heats the electrons in the plasma with a high-intensity beam of electromagnetic radiation. This system will be used to deposit heat in very specific places in the plasma.
