Development of a three-wave far-infrared laser interferometry and polarimetry diagnostic system for the C-2W field-reversed configuration plasmas

August 2018 | B. Deng | Review of Scientific Instruments | Paper

Great advancements in modern field-reversed configuration (FRC) experiments motivated the development of a 14-chord three-wave far infrared (FIR) laser interferometry and polarimetry diagnostic system, which can provide simultaneous high temporal resolution measurements of density and Faraday rotation profiles with high accuracy.

Collisional merging process of field-reversed configuration plasmas in the FAT-CM device

July 2018 | F. Tanaka (Nihon Univ.) | Plasma and Fusion Research | Paper

In order to investigate the collisional merging process of field-reversed configurations (FRCs), the FAT device has recently been upgraded to FAT-CM, consisting of two field-reversed theta-pinch (FRTP) formation sections and the confinement section.
