CTIX

The Compact Torus Injection Experiment (CTIX) is part of the Department of Applied Science at the University of California, Davis. The principal investigator of this research program is Professor David Hwang. Our facility studies basic plasma phenomena of the acceleration and formation of spheromak like compact toroids (CT or SCT). The acceleration of compact toroidal plasmas is a synthesis of two well-developed concepts: the spheromak plasma configuration and the railgun accelerator. The spheromak compact toroid is …more
