Measurement of Electron Density Profiles in the C-2 Merging FRC Experiment

November 2010 | B. Deng | APS-DPP | Poster

Plasma electron density profiles in the C-2 field reversed configuration (FRC) experiment are investigated. Measured profiles of translated FRC plasmas agree with MHD simulation results from the MHD code LamyRidge.
