We introduce a method of transmutation of spent radioactive nuclei in a liquid molten salt solution with fusion neutrons through a series of energy enhancements from accelerated deuterons via fusion to fission. This method is a part of the partitioning & transmutation (P&T) approach for the disposal of spent nuclear fuel where P&T enables the reduction of duration and volume of the spent nuclear fuel storage.

October 2018 | T. Roche | APS-DPP | Poster

The experimental goals of the C-2W program are to demonstrate the ability to heat and maintain a field-reversed configuration (FRC) plasma to a total temperature of several keV for a period of 30 ms.

October 2018 | B. Scott Nicks | APS-DPP | Poster

Beam-driven ion-Bernstein mode seen theoretically, exhibits wakefield character that creates similar large fast ion tail and fusion enhancement

October 2018 | S. Dettrick | APS-DPP | Poster

Flexible control systems for all three of these actuators are available on the C-2W experiment, so we study their effects on FRC Equilibrium and Global Stability
