Abstract : Preliminary results of the ECH experiment using the MIT Versator II with polarized microwave radiation were obtained. Decreases in both loop voltage and line average plasma density were measured as a function of power and toroidal angle of microwave beam injection. Thompson scattering measurements indicate an increase in the central electron temperature. These investigations showed a distinct asymmetry behavior for both polarizations.
