The Compact Toroidal Hybrid (CTH) is Auburn University's experiment for magnetically confining high temperature plasmas. CTH members form a diverse group of experimental, theoretical and computational physicists, at the faculty, graduate, and undergraduate levels. CTH can operate as a pure torsatron, but has an ohmic heating system to drive plasma current allowing our researchers to study disruptions and MHD phenomena in current-carrying stellarator plasmas.
