The TAE Technologies C-2 device [1,2] aims to explore confinement properties of colliding Field-Reversed Configuration (FRC) plasmas, augmented with neutral beam injection.

Plasma equilibrium profiles and fluctuations in the C-2 field reversed configuration (FRC) experiment [M. W. Binderbauer et al, Phys.Rev.Lett. 105, 045003 (2010)] are measured under various operation conditions.

We present an analytical derivation in cylindrical geometry of the Finite Larmor Radius approximation for the wave equations in the cyclotron frequency range.

Although high rotation velocity in a FRC may lead to rotational instabilities, it is also believed that shear flow helps in improving FRC stability and transport.

A Quasi-1D (Q1D) transport code is developed at Tri Alpha for predicting and interpreting the macroscopic time evolution of FRC plasmas.

One of the goals of the C-2 experiment [1,2] is to explore FRC sustainment and current drive from neutral beam injection. Studies of the relaxation and confinement of hot anisotropic ions created by the neutral beams are considered to be key elements of the experimental research program.

We report on progress made in using the NIMROD  code to simulate formation, translation and merging of FRCs in the C-2 experiment . This sequence is simulated in 2D and 3D, with and without inclusion of the Hall term.

An optical tomography system has been developed and implemented in the Flux Coil Generated Field Reversed Configuration (FCG-FRC) at TAE Technologies.

High required time resolution resolves in high required modulation frequency and high IF: need very fast data acquisition.
