The research area known as MAGO (Russian abbreviation for magnetic implosion) in Russia and as MTF (Magnetized Target Fusion) in the United States is an alternative to the main CTF approaches (magnetic confinement systems and inertial confinement fusion). The MAGO/MTF approach consists of two phases: 1. First magnetized hot plasma is produced suitable for(More)
This paper presents results of experimental and theoretical investigations performed in the frames of the MAGO magnetohydrodynamic implosion conception. This approach suggests magnetized deuterium/tritium (DT)-plasma formation and preheating up to temperature 0.2-0.4 keV and subsequent adiabatic plasma compression by a magnetically driven liner. The(More)
An issue important for the magnetic compression/magnetized target fusion (MAGO/MTF) approach is the impurity transport into plasma from the walls in the turbulent motion of the plasma, as the impurity-plasma radiation makes a significant contribution to cooling. For the axisymmetric magnetohydrodynamic flows in the azimuthal magnetic field that exist in the(More)
Magnetized plasma with characteristic density 8/spl middot/10/sup 17/ cm/sup -3/ and average temperature 250 eV has been obtained in a MAGO plasma chamber. One and two dimensional magneto-hydrodynamic computations are performed in which a solid density aluminum liner is imploded on the MAGO target plasma. An influence of a liner compressibility,(More)
MHD plasma flow transverse to a magnetic field in a bounded domain, initially set in a form of a sole vortex, is solved numerically. This problem is of interest for dynamic magnetized plasma systems such as the MAGO/MTF system. For plasma subsequent compression issues in those systems, it is important to know how long the hydrodynamic motion persists in(More)
To embark upon the experiments on thermonuclear ignition achievement at magnetic implosion of magnetized plasma in the system MAGO/MTF, it is necessary to have pure enough DT plasma heated to 0.3 keV-0.4 keV temperature. The study of the entire set of the experiments indicates that a major obstacle to solution of this problem is the danger of appearance of(More)
