A high-power long pulse electron beam was created at TAE. The beam is designed to be installed in a divertor and injected axially into the C-2W FRC device  for additional plasma heating . The beam currently operates at a test stand, and the research on beam injection through a strong magnetic field is carried out.

Numerous efforts have been made at Tri-Alpha Energy (TAE) to theoretically explore the physics of microwave electron heating in field-reversed configuration (FRC) plasmas. For the fixed 2D profiles of plasma density and temperature for both electrons and thermal ions and equilibrium field of the C-2U machine, simulations with GENRAY-C ray-tracing code have been conducted for the ratios of / ci[D] in the range of 6 – 20.
