    Resistive wall modes (RWMs) are studied within the kinetic model proposed by Heyn et al. [Nucl. Fusion 46, S159 (2006); Phys. Plasmas 18, 022501 (2011)], which accounts for Landau damping, transit-time magnetic pumping, and Coulomb collisions in cylindrical geometry. Results for the reversed...

  • A physical model of radiated enhancement of plasma-surrounded antenna. Xiaotian Gao; Chunsheng Wang; Binhao Jiang; Zhonglin Zhang // Physics of Plasmas;2014, Vol. 21 Issue 9, p1 

    A phenomenon that the radiated power may be enhanced when an antenna is surrounded by a finite plasma shell has been found in numerical and experimental studies. In this paper, a physical model was built to express the mechanism of the radiated enhancement. In this model, the plasma shell is...

  • Modeling of transport processes in stellarators. Kovrizhnykh, L.M. // Plasma Physics Reports;Dec2006, Vol. 32 Issue 12, p988 

    A relatively simple model of transport processes in stellarators is constructed that is based on neoclassical theory and accounts for anomalous heat losses. The model is used to perform calculations for the L-2M, ATF, CHS, and LHD stellarators over a wide range of plasma densities and absorbed...

    Predictions of quasisteady state DT plasmas in ITER [R. Aymar et al., Nucl. Fusion 41, 1301 (2001)] are generated using the PTRANSP code [R. V. Budny, Nucl. Fusion 49, 085008 (2009)]. The plasma temperatures, densities, boundary shape, and total current (9–10 MA) anticipated for ITER...

    It is shown that local features of the equilibrium current density profile, i.e., its gradient and curvature evaluated at the resonant magnetic surface, can modify considerably the linear behavior of tearing modes. These features can become particularly important in cylindrical geometry, at...

  • Plasma density cavitation due to inertial Alfven wave heating. Shukla, P. K.; Stenflo, L. // Physics of Plasmas;Oct99, Vol. 6 Issue 10, p4120 

    Shows that the differential Joule heating of the electrons in the inertial Alfven wave fields can be responsible for the fine scale density cavitations that are observed by the FREJA and FAST spacecrafts in the Earth's auroral plasma. Temperature fluctuations produced by the electron Joule...

  • Nonlinear effects resulting from the interaction of a large-scale Alfvén wave with a density filament. Drozdenko, T.; Morales, G. J. // Physics of Plasmas;Jul2001, Vol. 8 Issue 7, p3265 

    This analytic study investigates the nonlinear plasma response when a shear Alfvén wave of large transverse scale interacts with a field-aligned density perturbation whose transverse scale is comparable to the electron skin depth. The interaction between the large-scale wave and the density...

    Fundamental and applied research on plasmas with high energy density that are unstable and radiate can be done at a relatively low cost with small plasma pinches. In this paper we discuss three experiments using small pinch devices: a capillary discharge, a Z-pinch driven by a small generator,...

    Recently the nonlinear magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) model corrected by pressure anisotropy and Hall current arising from the ion inertia is applied to construct slow or mirror mode structures and compare with the observation in the Earth’s magnetosphere [K. Stasiewicz, Phys. Rev. Lett. 93,...
