Fusion Science and Technology / Volume 63 / Number 1T / May 2013 / Pages 1-7

The paper reviews the milestones in development of axially symmetric magnetic mirrors for plasma confinement. In particular, future prospects of the multi-mirror confinement system and gas-dynamic trap as neutron sources and drivers for fission-fusion hybrids are considered. An emphasis is made on discussion of current status of experimental studies on the GOL-3 and GDT devices in Novosibirsk.
