The C-2W device generates a field reversed configuration
(FRC) plasma in a 1.6 m diameter Inconel confinement vessel
(CV) by forming and accelerating two FRCs in opposite direc-
tions to collide and merge in the CV.

The C-2W device at TAE Technologies is now operational and represents another major step in a progression of advanced beam-driven Field-Reversed Configuration (FRC) confinement devices that have prolonged the lifetime, increased the stability and have added significant neutral beam injection power to heat.
