Performance Improvement of a Magnetized Coaxial Plasma Gun by adopting Iron-Core Bias Coil and Pre-Ionization Systems

March 2018 | T. Edo | Plasma and Fusion Research | Paper

A magnetized coaxial plasma gun (MCPG) is utilized to generate a compact toroid (CT). An MCPG-type CT injector had been developed as a particle refueling system for C-2/C-2U field-reversed configuration (FRC) plasmas. To inject CTs repetitively for a long-lived plasma, the injector has been upgraded.
