The scientists said, "This is a novel plasma device constructed to explore ways to the advanced-fuel fusion. The mechanism of plasma confinement is based on the concept of high-beta relaxed state that is self-organized in a flowing plasma."
A super-conducting ring, levitated in the vacuum chamber, produces a magnetic field that traps high-temperature plasma, creating a magnetosphere-like configuration. The plasma is produced by Electron Cyclotron Heating with 8.2GHz microwave.
