  • Content Description: The ISX-B tokamak is a modestly sized device that is designed to explore questions closely related to the design of future tokamak devices, such as the Engineering Test Facility (ETF). The major program emphasis is on high-..beta.. plasma operation using neutral beams to heat plasmas with noncircular cross sections. In addition, substantial efforts are under way or planned in the areas of plasma-wall interactions, coated limiter studies, electron-cyclotron heating, ripple injection, impurity flow reversal, pellet injection, and the application of a bundle divertor. The current status and future plans for these programs are reviewed.
