Measurement of Electron Density Profiles in the C-2 Merging FRC Experiment

Measurement of Electron Density Profiles in the C-2 Merging FRC Experiment

November 2010 | B. Deng | APS-DPP | Poster

Plasma electron density profiles in the C-2 field reversed configuration (FRC) experiment are investigated. Measured profiles of translated FRC plasmas agree with MHD simulation results from the MHD code LamyRidge.

Excluded Flux Measurements of Long-Lived Field-Reversed Configuration Plasmas

November 2010 | M. Thompson | APS-DPP | Poster

Diamagnetic measurements of field-reversed configuration (FRC) plasmas produced in the C-2 experiment are obtained with a linear array of 19 magnetic probes positioned along the length of the stainless steel confinement vessel.
