Publications Describing Device

A new high performance field reversed configuration operating regime in the C-2 device


A key accomplished goal of C-2 was to demonstrate a High Performance FRC (HPF), eg. improved confinement and stability compared to previous FRC efforts. Additionally the demonstration of heating and stability from Neutral Beam Injection was an important achievement of this device.
