We investigate here the interaction of the mirror plasma scrape-off layer, characterized by drift-interchange turbulence with an exponential toroidal wavenumber spectrum, and the much more quiescent FRC core, characterized by very low ion-scale turbulence levels, and a flat or inverted toroidal wavenumber spectrum.

An advanced multi-channel combined Doppler Back-scattering (DBS)/Cross-Polarization (CPS) diagnostic for the C-2W Field-Reversed Configuration (FRC) will be discussed

Field-reversed configurations (FRCs) are axisymmetric,
compact plasmas characterized by high β (the ratio of kinetic
to magnetic pressure).
