Spontaneous generation of magnetic field in an imploding plasma

  • S. K. H. Auluck (a1)


Spontaneous generation of an axial magnetic field is predicted when the usually neglected centripetal acceleration term is properly taken into account in the two-fluid equations of motion for a cylindrically symmetric imploding plasma. An order-of-magnitude calculation is presented to illustrate spontaneous generation of a reversed-field configuration in a plasma imploded by a metallic liner.
