Abstract:The end result of the research program was a development of the first steady-state discharge treatment of the IEC Star Mode incorporating the new physics understandings unearthed over the last eight years. Experimental benchmarking was successful at testing key model assumptions and validating the code simulation results. And finally, the PAIGS concept was studied and found to provide a modest (x1--2.5) increase in fusion reaction rate.
