Spectroscopic measurement of ion temperature and ion velocity distributions in the flux-coil generated FRC

October 2010 | Review of Scientific Instruments | Paper

One aim of the flux-coil generated field reversed configuration at Tri Alpha Energy TAE is to establish the plasma where the ion rotational energy is greater than the ion thermal energy.

Two-chord interferometry using 3.39 m He–Ne laser on a flux-coil-generated FRC

October 2010 | Review of Scientific Instruments | Paper

A two-chord IR3.39 m He–Ne laser interferometer system was developed for a flux-coil-generated field-reversed configuration to estimate the electron density and the total temperature of the field-reversed configuration FRC plasma.
