Intense localized electrostatic waves in tokamak plasmas are able to generate superthermal electrons and ions. The velocity diffusion of particles is influenced by coherence properties, nonlinearities, spectral density and amplitude modulation of the waves. These features are analyzed by test particle calculations and relativistic Vlasov-Poisson simulations.
