Cross field particle diffusion in plasma disruption

Kimitaka Itoh, Sanae Inoue Itoh

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A mechanism of cross field diffusion of plasma particles induced by the parallel electron heat flow is discussed. The diffusion coefficient in the disrupted magnetic field in tokamaks is estimated to have the Bohm-like dependence. Particles can diffuse much faster than streaming along field lines.
