Description

Report discussing "experimental results on the classical stabilized pinch," "the usefulness of the Levitron in Stellarator-type operation," and "practical details of the levitation process." A configuration is presented which involves a "toroidal pinch tube inside which a rigid toroidal conductor is levitated by means of an induced magnetic field." Additionally, "an alternative scheme is considered, where the toroidal core is suspended from current-carrying wires, but this approach does not appear promising."
