Increasing magnet power has an exponential diminishing return. It is somewhat of a red herring in regards to more magnet means better fusion with better containment. The real containment happens with adiabetic behaviour.
Just saying.

So, in layman's terms, larger would be better

I have done some rather simple calculations that show that for a given number of amp-turns making the device smaller increases the power inversely. i.e. half the size doubles the power.

Smaller is better.

Where this gets good is in Polywell rockets. And for rockets smaller is intrinsically better.

The daylight is uncomfortably bright for eyes so long in the dark.
