Abstract : A study of the poloidal mode structure of the dissipative trapped electron drift mode by Fourier analysis shows that when ion inertia effects are small compared to trapped electron effects, the mode balloons out in the region of trapped particles. When ion inertia effects are large, there is no ballooning and the growth rates are lower. (Author)
