Title: Use of coaxial plasma guns to start up field-reversed-mirror reactors

Abstract

Application of a magnetized coaxial plasma gun for start-up of a field-reversed-mirror reactor is considered. The design is based on preliminary scaling laws and is compared to the design of the start-up gun used in the Beta II experiment.
