Technical Paper / Open Magnetic Systems for Plasma Confinement
A mirror magnetic field configuration (MFC) is studied in which a divertor is distributed axially using multipole coils. Both configurations of divertor and minimum-B are obtained in a mirror cell. Magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) instability of a mirror cell can be eliminated in this way. Concept of the design and properties of the MFC are discussed.
