Collisional Merging of a Field-Reversed Configuration in the FAT-CM Device

June 2019 | T. Asai | Nuclear Fusion | Paper

Collisional merging formation of field-reversed configurations (FRCs) at super Alfvénic velocity have been successfully initiated in the FAT-CM device at Nihon University. It is experimentally evidenced that the quiescent FRC profile is formed in a self-organizational manner after distructive disturbances by the super Alfvénic collision of two translated magnetized plasmoids.

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.

Study of Dense FRC Formation and Transport with Multistage Compression

June 2013 | V. Bystritskii | ICOPS | Presentation

Based on several decades of experimental and theoretical research of Plasma Configuration with a Reversed magnetic Field (FRC) , it is presently considered as an alternative venue for steady state and/or pulsed CTF.

NIMROD Simulations of FRC Formation, Translation, Merging and Stability

NIMROD Simulations of FRC Formation, Translation, Merging and Stability

November 2011 | A. Necas | APS-DPP | Poster

We report on progress made in using the NIMROD [2] code to simulate formation, translation and merging of FRCs in the C-2 experiment [1]. This sequence is simulated in 2D and 3D, with and without inclusion of the Hall term.
