Saturation mechanism of the Weibel instability in weakly magnetized plasmas
Physics of Plasmas
The saturation mechanism of the Weibel instability is investigated theoretically by considering the evolution of currents in numerous cylindrical beams that are generated in the initial stage of the instability. Based on a physical model of the beams, it is shown that the magnetic field strength attains a maximum value when the currents in the beams evolve into the Alfven current and that there exist two saturation regimes. The theoretical prediction of the magnetic field strength at saturationdoi:10.1063/1.2017942 fatcat:nap4kkobhvci7dim4dfrklpyfa
