Experimental studies of plasma confined in a toroidal heliac
This thesis describes in detail the properties of and experimental results obtained
on the first toroidal heliac (helical axis stellarator) SHEILA.
The machine construction, operation and the Langmuir probe diagnostics used
in these experiments are described. Computational results for the wide range of
vacuum configurations made accessible by the addition of a helical winding to
the basic heliac coil configuration are presented and discussed.
The main part of this thesis is dedicated to...[Show more]
