Abstract Text:
In a mirror with supersonic rotation, charged fusion products might
interact with radio-frequency waves to maintain the rotation against
drag forces. Magnetic ripples that are stationary in the lab frame
can match the cyclotron frequency in the particle frame, allowing
resonant interaction without requiring power input. We examine the
feasibility of using these waves in a fusion device with a
deuterium-tritium plasma.
