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 compact toroids, by biasing edge plasma near the FRC separatrix from a plasma-gun (PG) located at one end of the C-2 device, and by neutral-beam (NB) injection.

In the C-2 FRC plasma, low impurities densities are essential to keep the radiation losses low as well as to achieve stable high performance FRC (HPF) plasma operation.

We have studied issues related to edge physics of the HPF regime FRC  ” using the NIMROD extended MHD code .
Interaction of Fast Ions with Global Plasma Modes in the C-2 Field Reversed Configuration Experiment
November 2012 | A. Smirnov | APS-DPP | Poster
A high-confinement operating regime  with plasma lifetimes significantly exceeding past empirical scaling laws was recently obtained by combining plasma gun edge biasing and tangential Neutral Beam Injection (NBI) in the C-2 field-reversed configuration (FRC) experiment [2, 3].
High-Frequency Magnetic Fluctuations in Field-Reversed Configuration Plasmas with Neutral Beam Injection
November 2012 | M. Thompson | APS-DPP | Poster
The C-2 experiment  seeks to study the properties of field-reversed configuration (FRC) plasmas with significant super-thermal ion populations generated by neutral beam injection.
Simulations And Observations Of Radiation In the Electron Cyclotron Frequency Range On the C-2 Device
November 2012 | E. Trask | APS-DPP | Poster
Several different antennas have recently been fielded on the TAE Technologies C-2  experimental system to measure radiation emission in the range of 1-60 GHz, where the fundamental electron cyclotron frequency is approximately 2.5 GHz at the edge of the field-reversed configuration (FRC).
