Neutral beam injected fast ions play a dominant role in both the field reversed configuration (FRC) at TAE Technologies and the Madison Symmetric Torus (MST) reversed field pinch (RFP), making fast ion diagnosis a major pillar of both research programs.

A magnetized coaxial plasma gun (MCPG) is utilized to generate a compact toroid (CT). An MCPG-type CT injector had been developed as a particle refueling system for C-2/C-2U field-reversed configuration (FRC) plasmas. To inject CTs repetitively for a long-lived plasma, the injector has been upgraded.
