Technical Paper / Open Magnetic Systems for Plasma Confinement

Recent experimental results on the initial plasma behavior in the AMBAL-M solenoid are reported. Attempts of forced destabilization and stabilization of the solenoid plasma by varying magnetic field structure in the solenoid to create a local mirror trap and divertor are described. Observations of unstable MHD plasma behavior after cut-off of the essentially stabilizing plasma gun are presented.
