Microwave-based diagnostic techniques have major advantages in
high temperature/burning plasmas more robust that optical diagnostics:
– no in-vessel / first wall optical windows/mirrors needed

A high-power long pulse electron beam was created at TAE. The beam is designed to be installed in a divertor and injected axially into the C-2W FRC device  for additional plasma heating . The beam currently operates at a test stand, and the research on beam injection through a strong magnetic field is carried out.
