Multiscale turbulence in magnetic confinement fusion devices

Abstract:

Turbulence in magnetised plasmas is driven by microinstabilities which exist at the spatial scales of the ion and the electron thermal gyroradii, with time scales corresponding to the ion and the electron thermal speeds, respectively. Hence, plasma turbulence can have a well-separated long wavelength "ion scale" (IS) and short wavelength "electron scale" (ES), where the separation is controlled by the electron-to-deuterium mass ratio (me/mi)1/2 = 1/60. Resolving multiscale...
