Abstract

The basic problems of the previous generations of the mirror traps, like MHD and kinetic stability and longitudinal thermal conductivity, were successfully solved, making it possible to reach temperatures much higher than it was supposed by the sceptics in early 2000-s. This paper sums up the experiments on magnetic mirrors in the Budker INP and their contribution to the next-step linear machine efforts. Current program of the linear machines for fusion exploits both experimentally verified and recently proposed methods of the longitudinal particle and energy loss suppression. Linear machine with improved enough longitudinal confinement is suitable for fusion with advanced fuels. Ways of the suppression are verified at GDT (gas-dynamic), GOL-NB (multiple-mirror), SMOLA (helical) and CAT (diamagnetic) devices. Next-generation GDMT project includes all the discussed ideas.
