Influences of high-density current injection with a miniature plasma source on a reversed-field pinch (RFP) have been studied in the Separatrix Test Experiment-2 (STE-2) device. The current injector has successfully produced a unidirectional field-aligned electron beam. No deterioration or slight improvement of the RFP discharge was observed with injection of poloidal current of up to 1 kA. The deepening of the local edge toroidal magnetic field reversal has been observed in the vicinity of the… CONTINUE READING
