- The rf coupling capabilities and characteristics of various antennas have been measured. The tested antenna configurations include the simple loop antenna operated at resonant lengths as used on Alcator-C, the cavity antenna proposed for Doublet III-D and the resonant double loop, asymmetric resonant double loop, and U-slot antennas. Models of the voltage, magnetic fields outside the structure, and current have been correlated with the measurements made on these antennas. From these measurements and from typical observations of ICRH coupling in tokamaks, we are studying power and frequency limitations on each antenna and the causes of the limitations. A comparison of the technology, performance, and power limitations of each type of antenna is presented.
