An expander divertor can be used to expand the Scrape-Off-Layer flux-tube of a linear device to arbitrary size, providing reduced energy flux to the wall, increased pumping capacity, formation of a pre-sheath for electrostatic confinement of electrons, and…

In the TAE C-2W experiment, confinement and stability of Field Reversed Configurations (FRC) relies on the presence of energetic ions from neutral beam injection and their relatively large Larmor radius.

Field Reversed Configurations (FRCs) are characterized by particular electric and magnetic field geometries that are due to the presence of unique particle orbit types as so-called Betatron, Drift, Fig8 and Type 1 orbits.
