Improved Confinement of C-2 Field Reversed Configuration Plasmas

February 2015 | H. Gota | Fusion Science and Technology | Paper

C-2 is a unique, large compact-toroid (CT) device at TAE Technologies that produces field-reversed configuration (FRC) plasmas by colliding and merging oppositely directed CTs. Significant progress has recently been made on C-2, achieving ,5 ms stable plasmas with a dramatic improvement in confinement, far beyond the prediction from the conventional FRC scaling.
