Establishment of fueling system is one of the critical issues for the future fusion reactors. Fueling experiment supersonic molecular beam injection (SMBI) have been carried out in the central-cell of GAMMA 10. In GAMMA 10, electron cyclotron resonance heating (ECRH) is used at plug/barrier-cells for the formation of the axial confining potential. Recently, ECRH was applied during SMBI to plug the loss particles and increased the plasma density in the central-cell compared to without ECRH. This result suggests that the particles are confined during SMBI due to the injection of ECRH at plug/barrier-cells in GAMMA 10.
