Overview of C-2W Field-Reversed Configuration Experimental Program

October 2017 | H. Gota | APS-DPP | Poster

Tri Alpha Energy’s research has been devoted to producing a high temperature, stable, long-lived field-reversed configuration (FRC) plasma state by neutral-beam injection (NBI) and edge biasing/control.

Equilibrium properties of hybrid field reversed configurations

January 2017 | M. Tuszewski | Physics of Plasma | Paper

Field Reversed Configurations (FRCs) heated by neutral beam injection may include a large fast ion pressure that significantly modifies the equilibrium. A new analysis is required to characterize such hybrid FRCs, as the simple relations used up to now prove inaccurate.

Transport studies in high-performance field reversed configuration plasmas

May 2016 | S. Gupta | Physics of Plasmas | Paper

A significant improvement of field reversed configuration (FRC) lifetime and plasma confinement times in the C-2 plasma, called High Performance FRC regime, has been observed with neutral beam injection (NBI), improved edge stability, and better wall conditioning.
