Inverted 3He and D ion cyclotron minority heating scenarios were recently tested in JET-ILW. They confirm the good heating efficiency at low concentrations of ∼3%. The 3He minority heating scheme is only modestly affected by the change from a carbon (JET-C) to a Beryllium (JET-ILW) wall but unlike what was the case in JET-C, the intrinsic Be ions D-like particles in terms of charge-over-mass ratio do not prevent the D (or 4He) minority regime from being exploited. Direct and indirect evidence of the existence of fast particle subpopulations was found in both cases.
