Compact Toroid Injection Fueling in a Large Field-Reversed Configuration

May 2017 | Nuclear Fusion | Paper

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.

Gyrokinetic particle simulation of a field reversed configuration

January 2016 | Physics of Plasmas | Paper

Gyrokinetic particle simulation of the field-reversed configuration (FRC) has been developed using the gyrokinetic toroidal code (GTC). The magnetohydrodynamic equilibrium is mapped from cylindrical coordinates to Boozer coordinates for the FRC core and scrape-off layer (SOL), respectively.

Equilibrium Profiles and Correlation with Instabilities in the C-2 FRC Experiment

November 2011 | APS-DPP | Poster

Plasma equilibrium profiles and fluctuations in the C-2 field reversed configuration (FRC) experiment [M. W. Binderbauer et al, Phys.Rev.Lett. 105, 045003 (2010)] are measured under various operation conditions.
