An Ion Beam System for Absolute Calibration of Neutral Particle Detectors for C-2W

April 2018 | R. Clary | HTPD2018 | Poster

A high-confinement operating regime with plasma lifetimes significantly ex- ceeding previous empirical scaling laws was recently obtained by combining plasma gun edge biasing and Neutral Beam Injection in the C-2U field-reversed configuration (FRC) experiment[1].

C-2U is a high-confinement, advanced beam driven field-reversed configuration (FRC) plasma which sustains the configuration for > 5 ms, in excess of typical MHD and fast particle instability times, as well as fast particle slowing down times.

July 2012 | R. Clary | Review of Scientific Instruments | Paper

A neutral particle bolometer (NPB) has been designed and implemented on the TAE Technologies C-2 device in order to spatially and temporally resolve the charge-exchange losses of fast-ion populations originating from neutral beam injection into field-reversed configuration plasmas.
