Controlled thermonuclear fusion: the stellarator concept


Model B-66 was the last of the B series stellarator devices. It had a racetrack shape but was used mainly as a magnetic mirror rather than as stellarator. It had a stronger magnetic field than its predecessors and an a ultra high vacuum system. B-66 was used to test the magnetic pumping at the ion cyclotron frequency and reached temperatures of about 200 eV.
