More recently, "Two Close Frequency Heating", where the frequency gap is comparable with the scale-length of the resonance, has been proposed, expected also to be sensitive to the relative waves phase relationship. At ATOMKI - Debrecen a dedicated experiment has been carried out for exploring the effects of the combined frequencies and their relative phase-difference in an argon plasma. The second frequency was finely tuned between 13.6-14.6 GHz with respect to the first one (fixed 14.25 GHz). An optimal frequency gap (in terms of Ar¹¹⁺/A⁶⁺ beam currents ratios) has been experimentally found, in agreement with the theory; the optimal power balance (total RF power was 200 W) between the two frequencies has been determined empirically. A weak but clear effect of the relative phase shift has been observed. Each configuration has been characterized by a multi-diagnostics set-up: HPGe and SDD detectors were used for the X-rays, a RF probe was introduced inside the plasma chamber to detect the radio-emission from the plasma.
