Title: METHOD FOR EXCHANGING ENERGY WITH A PLASMA BY MAGNETIC PUMPING

Abstract

A method of heating a plasma confined by a static magnetic field is presented. A time-varying magnetic field having a rise time to a predetermined value substantially less than its fall time is applied to a portion of the plasma. Because of the much shorter rise time, the plasma is reversibly heated. This cycle is repeated until the desired plasma temperature is reached. (AEC)
