Transport Processes in Axisymmetric Open Traps

Abstract

One of the most widely used and reliable methods of ensuring magnetohydrodynamic stability in a plasma is to use axisymmetric “minimum-B” magnetic fields. This was, in fact, the stabilization principle used by M. S. Ioffe and co-workers in the early sixties [1], and later successfully employed by the Livermore group in a set of experiments of increasing complexity, culminating in the sensational success with the 2XIIB installation [2]. It is used at present in most traps with ambipolar (tandem) mirrors [3–6]. Stabilization by “average minimum-B” is also used (see [7]) in several variants of multimirror traps.
