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.

High-temperature, stable, long-lived FRC state called, High Performance FRC (HPF), has been produced in the C-2 device with plasma-guns and NB injections.

A comprehensive diagnostic suite for field-reversed configuration (FRC) plasmas has been developed and installed on the C-2 device at TAE Technologies to investigate the dynamics of FRC formation as well as to understand key FRC physics properties, e.g., confinement and stability, throughout a discharge.
