We have been conducting compact toroid (CT) collision and merging experiments by using two magnetized
coaxial plasma guns (MCPG). As is well known, an actual CT/plasmoid moves macroscopically in a confining magnetic field. Therefore, three-dimensional measurements are important in understanding the behavior of the CTs.

The compact toroid (CT) injector system has been developed for particle refueling on the C-2U device.

We have developed a compact toroid (CT) injector system for particle refueling of the advanced beam- driven C-2U field-reversed configuration (FRC) plasma. The CT injector is a magnetized coaxial plasma gun (MCPG), and the produced CT must cross the perpendicular magnetic field surrounding the FRC for the refueling of C-2U.

A compact toroid (CT) injector was developed for the C-2 device, primarily for refueling of field- reversed configurations. The CTs are formed by a magnetized coaxial plasma gun (MCPG), which consists of coaxial cylindrical electrodes and a bias coil for creating a magnetic field.

A collaborative research project with TAE Technologies has been started and we have developed a new compact toroid (CT) injector for the C-2 device, mainly for fueling field-reversed configurations (FRCs).
