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.

Fusion plasmas require long lifetimes and high temperatures, both of which are limited by particle loss, among other factors.

C-2U is a macroscopically stable, high-performance field-reversed configuration (HPF), where high plasma temperatures with significant fast-ion population and record lifetimes were achieved.
