Turbulent transport in magnetized plasmas

About the project

Turbulent low frequency electrostatic fluctuations are identified as one of the most effective transport mechanisms of plasmas across magnetic field lines. These phenomena are studied by laboratory experiments in magnetized toroidal plasmas (in part by use of existing data from the Blaamann expriment), and also by analytical methods. Information concerning details of the transport processes can be obtained by a conditional statistical analysis.
