Multipoles are being employed as devices to study fusion issues and plasma phenomena at high values of beta (plasma pressure/magnetic pressure) in a controlled manner. Due to their large volume, low magnetic field (low synchrotron radiation) region, they also under consideration as potential steady state "advanced fuel" (low neutron yield) reactors. Present experiments are investigating neoclassical ("bootstrap" and "Pfirsch-Schlüter") currents and plasma stability at extremely high beta.
