In order to investigate the collisional merging process of field-reversed configurations (FRCs), the FAT device has recently been upgraded to FAT-CM, consisting of two field-reversed theta-pinch (FRTP)  ...  Steeper magnetic field gradient by a strong mirror field appears to suppress the axial expansion of collided FRCs and lead a merged FRC to higher temperature.  ...  Introduction A field-reversed configuration (FRC) is a compact toroid (CT) that has predominantly poloidal magnetic field with zero or small amount of self-generated toroidal field [1, 2] .  ...

2006 Plasma and Fusion Research  
An axially expanding motion of a field-reversed configuration plasma can be observed numerically.  ...  The diamagnetic beam current formed around the x-points and in the open-field region reduces the magnetic pressure, and then the plasma is found to expand axially.  ...  The external magnetic field B ex and the wall radius r w are 0.05 T and 0.4 m, respectively; they are identical to those obtained with the FIX machine. The mirror ratio R M is about 2.  ...
