    The thermal equilibrium electric field fluctuation energy of the gyrokinetic model of magnetized plasma is computed and found to be smaller than the well-known result <δE·δE>(k)/8π= 1/2 T/[1+(kλD)2] valid for arbitrarily magnetized plasmas. It is shown that, in a certain sense,...

    It is pointed out that the electrostatic and thermal fluctuations are the main source of magnetic fields in unmagnetized inhomogeneous plasmas. The unmagnetized inhomogeneous plasmas can support a low frequency electromagnetic ion wave as a normal mode like Alfven wave of magnetized plasmas. But...

    Measurements are presented of radiated wave electric fields which result from the creation of a dense, laser-produced plasma within a large, uniform background magnetoplasma. The radiated field patterns are consistent for waves propagating along the quasielectrostatic branch of the whistler wave...

    The evolution of diffusive and non-diffusive transport during pedestal buildup following a low-high (L-H) transition has been interpreted from a particle-momentum-energy balance analysis of the measured density, temperature, and rotation velocity profiles in the plasma edge (0.82<ρ<1.0) of a...
