Content

There is a possibility of enhanced plasma confinement in axially symmetric linear traps due to significant modification of equilibrium close to the upper beta limit. In general this type of equilibrium is highly unstable to ballooning modes while its low internal magnetic field may cause non-adiabatic particle losses. However, under special conditions these problems can be probably overcome. If achieved, the enhanced confinement in the diamagnetic "bubble" equilibrium may drastically improve fusion prospects of linear traps.
