Abstract

A new system for directly producing high-temperature high-quality deuterium plasmas within any type of magnetic containers has been constructed and operated, in which an on-line computer control technique is utilized to capture a falling deuterium ice-pellet by pulsed laser beam(s). Some experimental results on the fundamental physical properties of plasmas produced and interactions with nearly uniform magnetic field are presented. As an immediate application of this particular new plasma production method, detailed studies of spindle-cusp confinement properties for laser-produced high-beta deuterium plasma are being continued. Some of the computer analyses for these problems are also reviewed.
