Abstract
The main operations from 1979 to 2000 in the GAMMA 10 tandem-mirror, charac terized in terms of the high-potential mode having kV-order plasma-confinin g potentials and the hot-ion mode yielding fusion neutrons with 10-20 keV b ulk-ion temperatures, are summarized and generalized as a result of scaling s of the formation and the effects of the potentials. The wide validity of potential-formation physics from Cohen's theory and the validity of the gen eralized Pastukhov's theory for the effects of thermal-barrier potentials o n electron confinement are verified and consolidated through electron-energ y balance.
