Three-dimensional fluid simulations are performed in a simple magnetized toroidal plasma, in which vertical and toroidal magnetic fields create helicoidal magnetic field lines that terminate on the torus vessel. The simulations are carried out in the three-dimensional flux tube that wraps around...

- Quantum recoil and Bohm diffusion. Melrose, D. B.; Mushtaq, A. // Physics of Plasmas;Sep2009, Vol. 16 Issue 9, p094508
It is argued that the inclusion of the Bohm potential in quantum fluid equations is equivalent to inclusion of a nonrelativistic form of the quantum recoil in plasma kinetic theory. The Bohm term is incorrect when applied to waves with phase speed greater than the speed of light.

- Observation of a critical pressure gradient for the stabilization of interchange modes in simple magnetized toroidal plasmas. Federspiel, L.; Labit, B.; Ricci, P.; Fasoli, A.; Furno, I.; Theiler, C. // Physics of Plasmas;Sep2009, Vol. 16 Issue 9, p092501
The existence of a critical pressure gradient needed to drive the interchange instability is experimentally demonstrated in the simple magnetized torus TORoidal Plasma EXperiment [A. Fasoli et al., Phys. Plasmas 13, 055902 (2006)]. This gradient is reached during a scan in the neutral gas...

A recent paper [L.-N. Hau and W.-Z. Fu, Phys. Plasmas 14, 110702 (2007)] deals with certain mathematical and physical properties of the kappa distribution. We comment on the authorsâ€™ use of a form of distribution function that is different from the â€œstandardâ€ form of the kappa...

- Relativistic electron and ion dust charging currents. Tribeche, Mouloud; Boukhalfa, Soufiane // Physics of Plasmas;Sep2009, Vol. 16 Issue 9, p094502
A first theoretical attempt is made to present a relativistic generalization of the well-known orbit-limited motion theory. The appropriate relativistic (electron and ion) dust charging currents are derived. The nonlinear electrostatic potential is then expressed in terms of the variable dust...

The Childâ€“Langmuir law relates the voltage applied across a planar diode to the saturation value J[sub CL] of current density that can be transmitted through it in case the injection velocity of electrons is zero. The Childâ€“Langmuir current density J[sub CL] is, at the same time:...

- Density Transition Phenomena in Magnetized Plasma by Voltage Biasing. Shinohara, S.; Matsuyama, S.; Sugimori, K. // AIP Conference Proceedings;2003, Vol. 669 Issue 1, p236
Repeated transition phenomena (flip-flop pattern) with abrupt reductions and jumps of the electron density was observed, by the voltage biasing to an electrode in the cylindrical magnetized plasma. These global, self-excited, dynamical density transitions in bistable system were accompanied by...

- On steady poloidal and toroidal flows in tokamak plasmas. McClements, K. G.; Hole, M. J. // Physics of Plasmas;Aug2010, Vol. 17 Issue 8, p082509
The effects of poloidal and toroidal flows on tokamak plasma equilibria are examined in the magnetohydrodynamic limit. â€œTransonicâ€ poloidal flows of the order of the sound speed multiplied by the ratio of poloidal magnetic field to total field BÎ¸/B can cause the (normally...

In this Brief Communication, it is shown that an analytical solution for an exact two-dimensional X- or Y-line equilibrium may be constructed quite easily on the basis of the fundamental theoretical equation. The equilibria discussed in the present report show the potential for a rich variety of...
