Excluded Flux Measurements of Long-Lived Field-Reversed Configuration Plasmas

November 2010 | M. Thompson | APS-DPP | Poster

Diamagnetic measurements of field-reversed configuration (FRC) plasmas produced in the C-2 experiment are obtained with a linear array of 19 magnetic probes positioned along the length of the stainless steel confinement vessel.

Spectroscopic measurement of ion temperature and ion velocity distributions in the flux-coil generated FRC

One aim of the flux-coil generated field reversed configuration at TAE Technologies TAE is to establish the plasma where the ion rotational energy is greater than the ion thermal energy.

Two-chord interferometry using 3.39 m He–Ne laser on a flux-coil-generated FRC

October 2010 | H. Gota |Review of Scientific Instruments | Paper

A two-chord IR3.39 m He–Ne laser interferometer system was developed for a flux-coil-generated field-reversed configuration to estimate the electron density and the total temperature of the field-reversed configuration FRC plasma.
