C-2W’s ensemble of neutral
beams includes four static energy 15 keV H/D beams, four tunable energy 15-40 keV H/D beams, and one 40 keV diagnostic beam.

A workhorse diagnostic for investigating magnetic fluctuations in C-2W is a
Mirnov probe array comprising 3-axis magnetic probes for sensing “B-dot”
fluctuations at the CV wall arranged in evenly spaced rings.

By adjusting gas settings in each NB, this neutral flux was minimized. Localized wall heating was reduced and fast ion confinement times in the FRC plasma were improved by 25%.

DNB enables local main-ion measurements with improved spatial resolution defined by the intersection volume between the diagnostic neutral beam and optical sightlines
