In the GAMMA10 tandem mirror, a strong ion cyclotron range of frequency hea
ting is performed. As a result of the heating, the Alfven ion cyclotron (AI
C) modes are spontaneously excited due to the strong temperature anisotropy
. The AIC modes in the GAMMA10 are excited as the axial eigenmodes and dete
cted at the whole of the device. In the recent experiments, the clear stand
ing wave structure is observed with the magnetic probe measurements. Charac
teristics of the AIC modes and the measurement of the axial profile are pre
sented. (C) 2001 American Institute of Physics.
