Medical Definition of Thermal barrier

1. In magnetic mirror devices, this is a depression of electrostatic potential formed by enhancing ion loss in the region between the central cell and the positive potential plug. The thermal barrier significantly reduces the density requirements in the plug and lowers the overall power required to sustain the solenoidal plugging by thermally decoupling central cell electrons from the end plugs.
