- Experimental results and their theoretical interpretations of rf heating experiments in the ion cyclotron range of frequencies are presented. The presentation is in two parts, with this part describing the experimental facilities and characteristics of fast compressional Alfven waves in the tokamak, and a subsequent paper which will deal with the pricipal heating results. It is shown that a simple coupling structure which consists essentially of a semi-circular metal strip and a pair of bumper limiters is sufficient to efficiently couple rf power to the plasma. The major part of the coupled power is radiated as the fast wave, and there is no evidence that parasitic loading, if any, accounts for a significant amount of the power. A coupling efficiency (net coupled power/incident power) in excess of 90% is routinely obtained.
