Abstract

The results of the plasma start-up with ICRH of U-2M RF discharges in H2+He mixture with newly implemented controlled gas H2 concentration are presented. The W7-X like ICRH antenna operated in monopole phasing with applied RF power of ∼ 100 kW. We investigated plasma start-up in the pressure range p = 6×10−4 - 9 × 10−2 Pa. Plasma production with an average density of up to Ne ∼ 1013 cm−3 was observed at frequencies the fundamental harmonic of the hydrogen cyclotron frequency.
