    The new approach to calculating gyroinvariant drift velocities, recently published [Phys. Fluids B 2, 11 (1990)], is generalized to the case of nonuniform and time variable electric and magnetic fields. As before, a continuous averaging is done over a suitable quasiperiodic function. However,...

    Combined transaxial mirrors are studied. In the areas of motion of charged particles, the fields of these mirrors are symmetric relative to the axis and mid-plane representing the plane of symmetry for the electric field and the plane of asymmetry for the magnetic one. An image equation is...

  • Hypersensitivity of Human Subjects to Environmental Electric and Magnetic Field Exposure: A Review of the Literature. Levallois, Patrick // Environmental Health Perspectives Supplements;Aug2002 Supplement 4, Vol. 110, p613 

    Hypersensitivity to exposure to electric and magnetic fields (EMFs) has been reported for nearly 20 years; however, the literature on the subject is still very limited. Nearly all the literature published concerns a dermatological syndrome that consists of mainly subjective symptoms (itching,...

  • Drift stabilization of tearing modes and the L—H transition. Strauss, H. R. // Physics of Fluids B: Plasma Physics;Apr92, Vol. 4 Issue 4, p934 

    The L to H-mode transition is accompanied by a drop in the magnetic signal of a mode with low toroidal mode number, usually n=1. Quasilinear drift stabilization can cause a saturated tearing mode to collapse, under the conditions at the edge of a tokamak plasma. The criterion for stabilization...
