Magnetic geometries like the field reversed configuration and spheromak are compact toroids, where plasma is enclosed in a linear external magnetic field geometry. To burn advanced fuels requires a high fusion power density compact system and a D-3He field reversed configuration will be considered here. Such innovative confinement concept together with remarkable advantages of compact system and advanced fuels, including direct energy conversion, full lifetime fusion core, fusion space propulsion, nonelectrical application of D-3He fusion energy and space resources including helium-3 fusion fuel is very attractive.
