Abstract:

In this note the authors give some results of a computer study of magnetic fields produced by an impurity grain embedded in a dense plasma for which classical transport applies. It has been suggested that a plasma seeded with such impurity grains would fill up with magnetic turbulence which may be of interest for plasmas produced by focussed laser or electron beam pulses. Fields produced at composition boundaries may also be important in fusion pellet implosions.
