Collisional merging process of field-reversed configuration plasmas in the FAT-CM device

July 2018 | F. Tanaka (Nihon Univ.) | Plasma and Fusion Research | Paper

In order to investigate the collisional merging process of field-reversed configurations (FRCs), the FAT device has recently been upgraded to FAT-CM, consisting of two field-reversed theta-pinch (FRTP) formation sections and the confinement section.
