Analysis – interpretive modeling of experiment. Infer plasma parameters and profiles from diagnostics. Estimate transport coefficients and confinement times

Fusion reactivity for the pB11 fuel has been reassessed for magnetic confinement devices. This study is based on two factors: new measurements of the fusion reaction cross-sections and an accounting of the kinetic effects that lead to the increase of the number of protons at higher energies (with respect to a pure Maxwellian).

TAE Technologies, Inc, has an active fusion plasma research program centered around the FRC (Field Reversed Configuration) magnetic topology and the existing C-2W (aka Norman) experiment.

Flexible control systems for all three of these actuators are available on the C-2W experiment, so we study their effects on FRC Equilibrium and Global Stability

The magnetic structure of FRCs cannot be measured directly by existing diagnostics. A new tool “Grushenka” finds the structure based on magnetic measurements at the vessel wall.
