Abstract:

Energetic neutral beams and the two-energy-component reactor principle can be employed in Astron magnetic-field geometry to produce a steady-state fusion device with the following features 1 lenient breakeven conditions as in other types of two-component devices 2 self-confinement of the energetic ions and 3 closed minimum-B configuration for stable plasma confinement.
