Experimental test of damping models for n=1 toroidal Alfven eigenmodes in JET

The damping rate of the n = 1 toroidal Alfven eigenmodes (TAE) mode in Ohmic-heated JET plasmas has been measured and compared with the prediction of the kinetic NOVA-K code, which includes electron and ion Landau damping of the global shear-Alfven wave field, collisional damping, and radiative damping. It was found that the calculated damping rate is too small to account for the measured value under these experimental conditions. A relatively weak dependence of the damping rate on the normalized Larmor radius is observed experimentally.
