Magnetic Confinement Fusion

Magnetic confinement fusion is the charged particle in a magnetic field experiences a Lorentz force which is proportional to the product of the particle’s velocity and its magnetic field. The force causes electrons and ions to spiral about the direction of the magnetic line of force, thereby confining the particles. The first is to increase the strength of the magnetic field at two locations along the field line. Charged particles contained between these points can be made to reflect back and forth, an effect called magnetic mirroring.
