Title: HIGH TEMPERATURE REACTOR

Abstract

An apparatus of the stellarator type for heating a plasma to high temperatures is designed. Circularizers at the end of then helical windings produce a circular magnetic surface and provide improved confining and heating of the plasma. Reverse curvature sections formed in the end loops of the reaction tube provide increased plasma pressure for a given magnetic field pressure and thereby minimize the current flow in the helical windings. (AEC)
