Diagnostic Suite of the C-2W Advanced Beam-Driven Field-Reversed Configuration Plasma Experiment

April 2018 | M. Thompson | HTPD2018 | Poster

The new C-2W experiment (also called “Norman”) at TAE Technologies, Inc. studies the evolution of field-reversed configuration (FRC) plasmas sustained by neutral beam injection. Data on the FRC plasma performance is provided by a comprehensive suite of diagnostics that includes over 600 magnetic sensors.
