Fusion reactivity of the pB11 plasma revisited

Fusion reactivity of the pB11 plasma revisited

June 2019 | S.V. Putvinski | Nuclear Fusion | Paper

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).

First experimental measurements of a new fast ion driven micro-burst instability in a field-reversed configuration plasma

October 2018 | B. Deng | Nuclear Fusion | Paper

In modern F experiments at TAE Technologies, classical FRC instabilities are suppressed
by advanced neutral beam injection and edge biasing methods, leading to high plasma confinement and fast ion pressure built-up which is comparable to the bulk plasma pressure.
