ABSTRACT
Describes the status of the pellet charge exchange (PCX) diagnostic used on the Tokamak Fusion Test Reactor and discusses the results from radio frequency experiments investigating the heating of L-mode deuterium-tritium plasmas in the second-harmonic tritium cyclotron frequency regime. Measurement of tritium tail ions; Main components of the PCX; System of operation.
