NB-driven FRC plasmas stay in a steady-state for long time and allow a thorough study of electron heating mechanisms. Core plasma 𝑇𝑒
shows a strong correlation with 𝑃𝐵𝑖𝑎𝑠.

Effect of electrode biasing on plasma performance in the C-2W advanced FRC

Negatively-applied biasing improves confinement by stabilizing global MHD modes
• Bias is most effective in narrow biasing configurations
• Comparison of three electrode configurations shown …
