On an estimate of turbulent transport in a magnetized plasma (to the 90th anniversary of the birth of B.B. Kadomtsev)


Joint Institute for High Temperatures, Russian Academy of Sciences, ul. Izhorskaya 13/19, Moscow, 127412, Russian Federation

In 1964, B.B. Kadomtsev proposed that the results of a linear plasma instability analysis alone can be used to estimate the coefficients of turbulent cross magnetic field transport in a plasma. In this paper, examples of experimental support for this proposal are presented that concern, specifically, the properties of a turbulent positive discharge column in a strong magnetic field, the ionization turbulence of a weakly ionized plasma in crossed electric and magnetic fields, and turbulence in a tokamak wall plasma.
