    This paper aims at briefly describing the design and construction issues of the stellarator of Costa Rica 1 (SCR-1). The SCR-1 is a small modular stellarator for magnetic confinement of plasma developed by the Plasma ...
  • Atmospheric-Pressure Non-thermal Plasma-JET effects on PS and PE surfaces 

    Arrieta, J.; Asenjo, J.; Solís, Y.; Vargas-Blanco, Iván (Institute of Physics Publishing, 2015-03)
    The Atmospheric-Pressure Non-Thermal Plasma (APNTP) has become a topic of a great interest for a wide spectrum of applications in different industry branches, including the surface of treatment processes. In this work we ...
  • Transport, stability and plasma control studies in the TJ-II stellarator 

    Sánchez, J.; Alegre, D.; Alonso, A.; Alonso, J.; Alvarez, P.; Arévalo, J.; Ascasíbar, E.; Baciero, A.; Baiao, D.; Barcala, J. (Institute of Physics Publishing, 2015-07)
    The main TJ-II results since 2012 are presented in this overview. Impurity confinement is studied showing an isotopic dependence of impurity confinement time, asymmetries in parallel impurity flows in TJ-II ion-root plasmas ...
  • Copper deposition on fabrics by rf plasma sputtering for medical applications

    The present work is about preparation and characterization of RF sputtered Cu films on cotton by the usage of a Magnetron Sputter Source and 99.995% purity Cu target at room temperature. Cotton fabric samples of 1, 2 and ...
  • Are magnetic resonances practical transport controllers in fusion plasmas? the TJ-II experience 

    López-Bruna, D.; Romero, J.; Vargas-Blanco, Iván (Institute of Physics Publishing, 2015-03)
    The TJ-II stellarator is a mid-size Heliac design (high rotational transform, low magnetic shear) that allows for external control of the rotational transform profile. The long experience with locating diverse magnetic ...
