Title: PLASMA CONFINEMENT SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR USE
Abstract:
In one example, a plasma confinement system includes a substantially torus-shaped outer manifold aligned on a mid-plane of the plasma confinement system. The outer manifold includes a first helicity injection port at an inner radius of the outer manifold. The plasma confinement system further includes a substantially torus-shaped inner manifold aligned on the mid-plane within the inner radius of the outer manifold. The inner manifold includes a second helicity injection port at an outer radius of the inner manifold. The plasma confinement system further includes a helicity injection tube on the mid-plane. The helicity injection tube connects the first helicity injection port to the second helicity injection port. Methods for using the plasma confinement system are also disclosed herein.
