May 2021 | N. Bolte | 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.

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.

December 2020 | J. Titus | HTPD 2020 | Poster

Four static beams (15 keV) and four tunable beams (15-40 keV) are currently operational on C-2W. A tungsten wire calorimeter was designed with the help of a two-dimensional heat transfer model to measure injected neutral beam power.
