October 2019 | H. Gota | APS-DPP | Poster

TAE Technologies, Inc. (TAE) is a privately funded company pursuing an alternative approach to magnetic confinement fusion, which relies on field-reversed configuration (FRC) plasmas composed of mostly energetic

Measurement of Axial Plasma Losses in the C-2W High Performance Regime

October 2019 | M. E. Griswold | APS-DPP | Poster

In TAE Technologies’ current experimental device, C-2W (also called Norman), record breaking, advanced beam-driven field reversed configuration (FRC) plasmas are produced and sustained in steady state

Formation of Hot, Stable, Long-Lived Field-Reversed Configuration Plasmas on the C-2W Device

June 2019 | H. Gota | Nuclear Fusion | Paper

TAE Technologies’ research is devoted to producing high temperature, stable, long-lived field-reversed configuration (FRC) plasmas by neutral-beam injection (NBI) and edge biasing/control.

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.
