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

July 2016 | T. Matsumoto | 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 | T. Matsumoto | 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.
