Progress in understanding lower hybrid current drive (LHCD) at high density has been made through experiments and modeling, which is encouraging given the need for an efficient off-axis current profile control technique in burning plasma. By reducing the wall recycling of neutrals, the edge temperature is increased and the effect of parametric inst…

Lower Hybrid waves have shown to have a high current drive (CD) efficiency suitable for current profile modification [1, 2]. These results were obtained at rather low density. Recent results on C-Mod [3], FTU [4] and JET [5, 6] indicate that CD efficiency could decrease at high density. On JET, the analysis of the contribution of fast electrons to …
