Tomography on C-2W: Deployment of 300-channel Bolometry System and First Results

November 2021 | A. Bondarenko | APS-DPP 2021 | Poster

In TAE Technologies’ current experimental device, C-2W, 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), expander divertors, end bias electrodes, and…

Overview of C-2W: high temperature, steady-state beam-driven field-reversed configuration plasmas

October 2021 | H. Gota | Nuclear Fusion | Paper

TAE Technologies, Inc. (TAE) is pursuing an alternative approach to magnetically confined fusion, which relies on field-reversed configuration (FRC) plasmas composed of mostly energetic…

Main-Ion Charge Exchange Recombination Spectroscopy on C-2W FRC Plasmas

Measurements of impurity ion temperature and velocity distributions via active charge-exchange recombination spectroscopy in C-2W

December 2020 | M. Nations | HTPD 2020 | Poster

Edge biasing of annular electrodes in the divertor region is routinely utilized as a boundary control technique to stabilize the FRC in the confinement vessel (CV).
