We have completed a conceptual design study of the field-reversed mirror reactor. For this reactor a reference case conceptual design was developed in some detail. The parameters of the design result partly from somewhat arbitrary physics assumptions and partly from optimization procedures. Two of the assumptions-that only 10% of the alphaparticle energy is deposited in the plasma and that particle confinement scales with the ionion collison time-may prove to be overly conservative.
