IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON PLASMA SCIENCE, Vol.39, 2011
Isosurfaces of the pressure in a 3D MHD simulation of a hot magnetized
plasma dominated by the ballooning instability are visualized. The flutelike
structures of the isosurfaces indicates growth of the ballooning mode.
The yellow circle indicates the tangential port of the LHD.

Journal of Geophysical Research Vol.115, A08304 (2010)
The left panel shows the distribution of the fieldaligned current density
perturbation at the ionospheric height, which is obtained by a nonlinear
simulation. The right panel represents the distribution of the linear growth
rate calculated from the quasisteady state data through the integrated
feedback instability theory. This figure indicates that the areas where
longitudinally striated structures appear are consistent with the prediction
by the theory.

of electrons and ions in spacevelocity phase space, respectively. This
result indicates that double layer creation by ionacoustic instability
also occurs in a case where the electron drift velocity is comparable to
the electron thermal velocity.
