Technical Paper / Open Magnetic Systems for Plasma Confinement

A formula for the plasma pressure as a functional of the diamagnetic loop voltage is derived for a general case when the time for the magnetic flux to percolate through conducting wall of vacuum chamber is not small as compared to the plasma confinement time. An arbitrary shape of the conducting chamber and the plasma column are allowed in contrast to earlier theories based on axial symmetry of the system.
