The article discusses some fundamentals of radio frequency (RF) engineering. It describes the RF planning process, noting the need for understanding customer requirements and making a decision that includes the technical requirements and financial constraint. Some design elements to consider include frequency band selection, RF link budgets and regulations and technical capabilities of the base stations, repeaters and subscribers. The individual components of link budgeting are discussed.

    Trace impurity transport in tokamaks is studied using an electrostatic, collisionless fluid model for ion-temperature-gradient and trapped-electron mode driven turbulence in the presence of radio frequency (rf) fields, and the results are compared with neoclassical predictions. It is shown that...
