Development of a new linear device for confinement of fusion plasmas is under way in the Budker Institute of Nuclear Physics, Novosibirsk. The new device combines features of existing GOL-3 and GDT traps, namely, the central GDT-like cell with sloshing ions produced by intense neutral beam injection, and the multiple-mirror end sections for suppression of axial plasma losses. It is designed as a prototype of an energy-efficient neutron source and a testbed for development of mirror-based fusion reactors.
