Inferring Fast Ion Properties in the C-2W FRC

November 2021 | G. Player | APS-DPP 2021 | Poster

In TAE Technologies’ current experimental device, C-2W (also called “Norman”), record breaking, advanced beam-driven FRC plasmas are produced and sustained in steady state utilizing variable energy neutral beams (15 – 40 keV, total power up to 20 MW)…

Evolution and consequences of orbit type distributions in FRCs

November 2021 | F. Ceccherini | APS-DPP 2021 | Poster

Field Reversed Configurations (FRCs) are characterized by particular electric and magnetic field geometries that are due to the presence of unique particle orbit types as so-called Betatron, Drift, Fig8 and Type 1 orbits.
