Comprehensive imaging of C-2W plasmas: Instruments and applications

April 2021 | E. M. Granstedt | Review of Scientific Instruments | Paper

The C-2W device (“Norman”) [Gota et al., Nucl. Fusion 59, 112009 (2019)] has produced and sustained beam-driven field-reversed configuration (FRC) plasmas embedded in a magnetic mirror geometry using neutral beams and end-bias electrodes located in expander divertors.

The C-2W device (also known as “Norman”) at TAE Technologies has proven successful at generating stable, long-lived field-reversed configuration (FRC) plasmas with record temperatures.

The integrated diagnostic suite of the C-2W experimental field-reversed configuration device and its applications

March 2021 | T. Roche | Review of Scientific Instruments | Paper

In TAE Technologies’ current experimental fusion device, C-2W, record breaking, advanced beam-driven FRC plasmas are produced and sustained in steady state utilizing variable-energy neutral beams, expander divertors, end-bias electrodes, and an active plasma control system.
