The preliminary design of an Ion Cyclotron Range of Frequency traveling-wave antenna, based on a comb-line structure in a resonant ring, is presented. The design maximize the coupled power to the inhomogeneous plasma giving an operation band characterized by an almost perfect matching to the generator(s) with a simple feeding system. The antenna system is suitable for the operation in a fusion device.
