Laboratory evidence of dynamo amplification of magnetic fields in a turbulent plasma

Abstract:

Magnetic fields are ubiquitous in the Universe. Diffuse radiosynchrotron emission observations and Faraday rotation measurements have revealed magnetic field strengths ranging from a few nG and tens of µG in extragalactic disks, halos and clusters [1], up to hundreds of TG in magnetars, as inferred from their spin-down [2]. The energy density of these fields is typically comparable to the energy density of the fluid motions of the plasma in which they are embedded, making magnetic fields esse...
