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.

Spent nuclear fuel from current nuclear reactors generally managed by two distinct policies: once-through (U.S., Sw) and U/Pu recycling (Fr,J)

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.
