Abstract [en]

The straight field line mirror field is a marginal minimum B field with straight nonparallel field lines. This field gives optimal ellipticity, the drift surfaces lie on a magnetic surface, radiofrequency heating of the plasma is predicted to be efficient and MHD stability is provided by the minimum B property. One intended application of the magnetic field configuration is energy production and transmutation of spent nuclear fuel in a fusion-fission machine, where the mirror confined plasma is surrounded by a fission mantle. Reactor safety can be increased with a subcritical fission mantle, and the fission power can exceed the fusion power by as much as a factor of 150 with a reasonable condition for reactor safety margins, and this provides a basis for a compact reactor design. The straight field line mirror concept can also be of interest as a plasma source for synthesis of sophisticated materials. PACS: 28.52.Av, 28.41.Ak.
