Field Reversed Configuration and Neutron Sources /

Published:February 8, 2018

The high fusion power density resulting from high beta (the ratio of the plasma to magnetic energy density) and natural divertor make the field-reversed configuration (FRC) a prime candidate for fusion reactor other than tokamak, the so-called alternate concept. Brief review of the simple compact system with natural advantages and reactor potential is given. Theoretical and experimental results over the last seven years are discussed.
