Formation of a long-lived hot field reversed configuration by dynamically merging two colliding high-β compact toroids

May 2011 | E. Garate | Physics of Plasmas | Paper

A high temperature field reversed configuration (FRC) has been produced in the newly built, world’s largest compact toroid (CT) facility, C-2, by colliding and merging two high-β CTs produced using the advanced field-reversed θ-pinch technology.
