We describe a device for generation and trapping of fluxon-antifluxon (FA) pairs in a long annular Josephson junction. The trapped fluxons and antifluxons experience multiple collisions and eventually decay into plasmons. We analyse the energy dissipation in the system and find the criteria for trapping of the FA pair. We describe a possible experiment for realization of multiple FA trapping and formation of a FA plasma. Similar to vortex liquids discussed recently by Anderson it might be a good candidate for another vortex liquid. The proposed device can be made of niobium or high temperature superconductors.
