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

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.

Two-chord interferometry using 3.39 m He–Ne laser on a flux-coil-generated FRC

October 2010 | H. Gota |Review of Scientific Instruments | Paper

A two-chord IR3.39 m He–Ne laser interferometer system was developed for a flux-coil-generated field-reversed configuration to estimate the electron density and the total temperature of the field-reversed configuration FRC plasma.

Development of a nine spatial point multipulse Thomson scattering diagnostic

October 2010 | F. Glass | Review of Scientific Instruments | Paper

A Thomson scattering diagnostic has been developed for the C-2 field-reversed configuration device. Based on a multipulse ruby laser, the system measures the electron temperature at nine spatial points.

Neutral Beam Dump Utilizing Cathodic Arc Titanium Evaporation

June 2010 | A. Smirnov | Open Systems | Presentation

Unlike tokamaks, where the neutral beam shine through is rarely an issue, open magnetic systems with neutral beam injection oftentimes suffer from incomplete beam capture, which necessitates the handling of the shine through power load and beam particle recycling.
