October 2019 | S. A. Galkin | APS-DPP | Poster

A current-vorticity MHD model and code have been developed for FRC plasma control applications in the C-2W device [1]. The model uses a flexible filtering…

June 2019 | C.K. Lau | Nuclear Fusion | Paper

Recent local simulations of the field-reversed configuration (FRC) have reported drift-wave stability in the core and instability in the scrape-off layer (SOL). However, experimental measurements indicate the existence of fluctuations in both FRC core and SOL, with much lower amplitude fluctuations measured in the core.

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).

June 2019 | T. Asai | Nuclear Fusion | Paper

Collisional merging formation of field-reversed configurations (FRCs) at super Alfvénic velocity have been successfully initiated in the FAT-CM device at Nihon University. It is experimentally evidenced that the quiescent FRC profile is formed in a self-organizational manner after distructive disturbances by the super Alfvénic collision of two translated magnetized plasmoids.
