The C-2W experiment at TAE Technologies aims at sustaining an advanced beam- driven field reversed configuration (FRC) plasma. However, FRC lifetime is limited by particle confinement, among other factors.

A magnetized coaxial plasma gun (MCPG) is a device used to generate a compact toroid (CT), which has a spheromak-like configuration.

C-2 and C-2U experiments  have used magnetized coaxial plasma guns (MCPG) to inject compact toroids (CTs) for refueling the long-lived advanced beam-driven field-reversed configuration (FRC) plasma .

A repetitively driven compact toroid (CT) injector has been developed for the large eld- reversed con guration (FRC) facility of the C-2/C-2U, primarily for particle refueling. A CT is formed and injected by a magnetized coaxial plasma gun (MCPG) exclusively developed for the C-2/C-2U FRC.

Fusion plasmas require long lifetimes and high temperatures, both of which are limited by particle loss, among other factors.
