Abstract

The rotating magnetic field bω of a rotamak tilts the effective flux surface seen by electrons (but not ions). Electrons are imperfectly confined to these tilted flux surfaces, but are energetically confined in a 3D potential well bounded by an untilted flux surface. When ebω/meνei≊r0/δskin the tilt is minimized and the well depth corresponds to MHD pressure balance.
