Axisymmetric equilibrium of a magnetically confined plasma with multiple ion species is considered. To describe hot plasmas with isothermal surfaces, we adopt a formulation consistent with zero poloidal ion flow.

A high temperature, stable, long-lived field-reversed configuration (FRC) plasma state has been produced in the C-2 device by dynamically colliding and merging two oppositely directed, highly supersonic compact toroids (CTs).

Demonstration of long-lived FRCs by dynamic merging Compact Toroids (CTs). Hot stable FRCs have been produced C-2 using the novel merging FRC technique, and plasma lifetime achieved record exceeding 2ms.
