Kolmogorov Dissipation scales in Weakly Ionized Plasmas

Abstract

In a weakly ionized plasma, the evolution of the magnetic field is described by a “generalized Ohm’s law” that includes the Hall effect and the ambipolar diffusion terms. These terms introduce additional spatial and time scales which play a decisive role in the cascading and the dissipation mechanisms in magnetohydrodynamic turbulence. We determine the… (More)
