Field compressing magnetothermal instability in laser plasmas.

Abstract:

The mechanism for a new instability in magnetized plasmas is presented and a dispersion relation derived. Unstable behavior is shown to result purely from transport processes-feedback between the Nernst effect and the Righi-Leduc heat-flow phenomena in particular-neither hydrodynamic motion nor density gradients are required. Calculations based on a recent nanosecond laser gas-jet experiment [D. H. Froula, Phys. Rev. Lett. 98, 135001 (2007)] predict growth of magnetic field and temperature pe...
