Measurements of Formation Dynamics in a Multi-Pulse Compact Toroid Injector System

April 2018 | HTPD2018 | Poster

The C-2W experiment at TAE Technologies aims at sustaining an advanced beam- driven field reversed configuration (FRC) plasma. However, FRC lifetime is limited by particle confinement, among other factors.

Compact Toroid Injection Fueling in a Large Field-Reversed Configuration

May 2017 | Nuclear Fusion | Paper

A repetitively driven compact toroid (CT) injector has been developed for the large eld- reversed con guration (FRC) facility of the C-2/C-2U, primarily for particle refueling. A CT is formed and injected by a magnetized coaxial plasma gun (MCPG) exclusively developed for the C-2/C-2U FRC.

Characterization of compact-toroid injection during formation, translation, and field-penetration

July 2016 | Review of Scientific Instruments | Paper

We have developed a compact toroid (CT) injector system for particle refueling of the advanced beam- driven C-2U field-reversed configuration (FRC) plasma. The CT injector is a magnetized coaxial plasma gun (MCPG), and the produced CT must cross the perpendicular magnetic field surrounding the FRC for the refueling of C-2U.

Development of a magnetized coaxial plasma gun for compact toroid injection into the C-2 field-reversed configuration device

May 2016 | Review of Scientific Instruments | Paper

A compact toroid (CT) injector was developed for the C-2 device, primarily for refueling of field- reversed configurations. The CTs are formed by a magnetized coaxial plasma gun (MCPG), which consists of coaxial cylindrical electrodes and a bias coil for creating a magnetic field.
