February 2023 | R. Magee | Nature Communications | Paper

Proton-boron (p11B) fusion is an attractive potential energy source but technically challenging to implement. Developing techniques to realize its potential requires first developing the experimental capability to produce p11B fusion…

December 2016 | L. Schmitz | Nature Communications | Paper

An economic magnetic fusion reactor favours a high ratio of plasma kinetic pressure to magnetic pressure in a well-confined, hot plasma with low thermal losses across the confining magnetic field.

November 2021 | E. Granstedt | APS-DPP 2021 | Poster

In TAE Technologies’ current experimental device, C-2W (also called “Norman’’)[1,2], voltages applied to
concentric annular electrodes located in divertors are used to stabilize beam-driven field reversed
configuration (FRC) plasmas.

November 2021 | C. Scott | APS-DPP 2021 | Poster

Using an Ensemble of Physics-Informed Neural Networks to Generalize to Unseen Equilibria

November 2021 | A. Tkachev | APS-DPP 2021 | Poster

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 [1] for additional plasma heating [2]. The beam currently operates at a test stand, and the research on beam injection through a strong magnetic field is carried out.

November 2021 | A. Bondarenko | APS-DPP 2021 | Poster

In TAE Technologies’ current experimental device, C-2W, record breaking, advanced beam-driven FRC plasmas are produced and sustained in steady state utilizing variable energy neutral beams (15 – 40 keV, total power up to 20 MW), expander divertors, end bias electrodes, and…

October 2021 | S.A. Dettrick | Nuclear Fusion | Paper

The advanced beam-driven FRC is a field reversed configuration (FRC) with the addition of neutral beam (NB) injection, electrode biasing, and magnetic expander divertors.

August 2021 | M. Griswold | OS2021 | Presentation

Original array of diagnostics on C-2W’s divertor electrodes
demonstrated the functionality of C-2W’s expander divertors:
• Measured Ambipolar Potential of 4-5 Te
• Small Debye Sheath of ~1 Te

August 2021 | T. Roche | OS2021 | Presentation

TAE has developed the world’s premier FRC machine
• The C-2W Project has accomplished its goals:
• Steady state operation for > 30 ms
• Plasma parameter ramp up via NB heating and current drive …
