Overview of C-2W Field-Reversed Configuration Experimental Program

October 2017 | H. Gota | APS-DPP | Poster

Tri Alpha Energy’s research has been devoted to producing a high temperature, stable, long-lived field-reversed configuration (FRC) plasma state by neutral-beam injection (NBI) and edge biasing/control.


Compact Toroid Injection Fueling in a Large Field-Reversed Configuration

May 2017 | T. Asai | 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.
