本論文では、JT-60Uにおけるイオンサイクロトロン周波数帯の自発的励起波動の実験的観測に関して報告する。磁場閉じ込めプラズマ中では、非等方速度分布に起因して不安定性が駆動される。中性粒子入射による高エネルギーDイオンによる励起波動と核融合反応イオン($$^{3}$$He, T)による2つのタイプの揺動が観測されている。これらの揺動は、JET, TFTRで観測されるイオンサイクロトロン放射(ICE)と呼ばれるものと同じものと考えられる。本論文では、初めてこれらの励起波動の空間構造を明らかとした。ICRF加熱用のアンテナを磁気プローブとして用い、ポロイダル方向の空間構造を測定し、観測される波動が揺動磁場成分を持つことが明らかとなった。また、トロイダル方向の空間構造からDイオンに起因する揺動は磁場方向の波数が零付近、核融合反応イオンに起因する揺動は有限な波数を持つことが明らかとなった。さらに核融合反応イオンの$$^{3}$$HeとTに関しても異なる構造が観測され、異なるアルベン波動が不安定になることが示唆された。

In this paper, experimental observations of spontaneously excited waves in the ion cyclotron range of frequency (ICRF) on JT-60U are described. The fluctuations in ICRF are driven by the presence of non-thermal ion distribution in magnetic confinement plasmas. Two types of magnetic fluctuations are detected: one is due to high energy D ions from neutral beam injections and the other is due to fusion products (FPs) of $$^{3}$$He and T ions. These fluctuations have been reported as ion cyclotron emissions (ICEs) in the burning plasma experiments on large tokamaks. This paper describes the first measurement of the spatial structures of the excited modes in the poloidal and toroidal directions. It is confirmed by using ICRF antennas as magnetic probes that all modes excited spontaneously have magnetic components and couple to the antenna straps. The modes due to D ions have small toroidal wave number $$kappa$$$$_{z}$$ and will behave as electrostatic waves. On the while, the measurement of finite $$kappa$$$$_{z}$$ in the modes due to FP ions supports the excitation of the Alfv$'e$n waves is the possible origin of FP-ICEs. It is also confirmed that the excited modes due to FP ions have different wave structures and are suggested to be in the different branch of the Alfv$'e$n waves, that is, the fast Alfv$'e$n wave and the slow Alfv$'e$n wave. Frequency peaks due to FP ions are sometimes split into doublet shape as observed in JET experiments. The phase differences of both peaks are measured and indicate that two waves are traveling in both toroidal directions. Both beam-driven ICEs and FP-ICEs are observed and those spatial structures are obtained on JT-60U.
