The plasma is away from the walls as it is pulled toward the cathodes in the center and the chamber.
The walls can be positively charged
The hotter the plasma becomes, the more influenced it will be by the electric charge.
if the orbit of the plasma becomes organized, wouldn't it create its own magnetic field?
By the way, the plasma would be heated by pulsing the current at the resonant frequency of the fuel.
A self organized structure
variable pulsed DC current
heating at a frequency of 61.4 MHz if the fuel were deuterium
61.4 MHz is (by one source) the nuclear resonance of deuterium though may or may not be the best frequency for this.
In this device, ions should begin to orbit the cathodes in an organized fashion.
I would consider this device to behave like a particle trap
Under the right conditions, I speculate a disc or toroid.
Moving charged particles create a magnetic field...
...and therefore organize.
This is why you need a closed-loop control system to keep the plasma contained.
