Award Amount: $485,720.00
Abstract:
This project will assess the feasibility of enhancing the performance of toroidal devices for magnetic confinement of fusion plasmas by using high-beta, hot-electron, surface- layer plasmas. the objective of this enhancement is to permit stable operation at substantially higher values of beta than… More

HIGH-SPEED PLASMA VACUUM PUMP A PLASMA IN WHICH ELECTRON TEMPERATURE IS MAINTAINED IN THE RANGE 30-100 EV CAN BE AN EFFECTIVE MEDIUM FOR IONIZING NEUTRAL GAS IN AN ENCLOSED SPACE. FURTHERMORE, SINCE THE RESULTING IONIZED GAS CAN FLOW ALONG MAGNETIC LINES

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1985 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Raphael A. Dandl , President
Award Amount: $499,763.00
Abstract:
Gas, a magnetized plasma stream can function as a high-speed vacuum pump with unique technical advantages. to realize these advantages in a practical way, it is essential to utilize an efficient electron heating technique to create the plasma and maintain the optimal electron temperature. the… More

OF RELATIVISTIC-ELECTRON PLASMAS

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1985 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Mr. raphael a. dandl , PRINCIPAL INVESTIGATOR
Award Amount: $50,000.00
Abstract:
Relativistic-electron plasmas, created and sustained by electron cyclotron heating (ech) in magnetic- mirror fields, have many promising applications. they can be used to stabilize plasma confinement configurations, such as the elmo bumpy square, the heliac, and even tokamaks; and they can enchance… More

HIGH-BETA OPERATION OF COMMERCIAL TOKAMAK REACTORS USING HOT ELECTRONS

HIGH-BETA OPERATION OF COMMERCIAL TOKAMAK REACTORS USING HOT ELECTRONS

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1986 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Dr. Robert L. Miller , Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $498,000.00
Abstract:
This project will assess the requirements and provide a basis for designing an optimized system for a tokamak reactor to reach the high-beta, "second stability regime" from startup, using electron cyclo- tron heating (ech) techniques. the power needed to achieve a stable plasma evolution to the… More

CYCLOTRON HEATING

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1986 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Raphael a. dal , PRINCIPAL INVESTIGATOR
Award Amount: $50,000.00
Abstract:
The thermal-barrier concept for tandem magnetic mirrors has greatly inhanced the attractiveness of this approach to confining high-temperature plasmas for fusion power. transient existence of thermal barriers has already been demonstrated in the tmx experiment at livermore and in the gamma 10… More

CURRENT DENSITY PROFILE DIAGNOSTIC SYSTEM ANALYSIS AND AN ATOMIC BEAM SOURCE FOR THE COMPACT IGNITION TOKAMAK

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1988 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Dr earl s ensberg
Award Amount: $50,000.00
Abstract:
For the optimization of tokamak performance, the international fusion energy community generally has a need for current density profile measurements. to accomplish such measurements, it is planned to accelerate unpolarized ground state atoms (hydrogen or helium) along a chord through the plasma to a… More

MULTIPLE FREQUENCY ELECTRON CYCLOTRON HEATING OF ENERGETIC ELECTRONS FOR IONOSPHERIC MODIFICATION EXPERIMENT
