The C-2W machine is the world’s premier Advanced Beam-Driven FRC
n Monitoring the complete magnetic evolution of the plasma is essential for
understanding the system’s dynamics
n Over 500 B-field signals are monitored to provide both post-shot analysis data and data for an advanced active feedback system.

We have been conducting compact toroid (CT) collision and merging experiments by using two magnetized
coaxial plasma guns (MCPG). As is well known, an actual CT/plasmoid moves macroscopically in a confining magnetic field. Therefore, three-dimensional measurements are important in understanding the behavior of the CTs.
