Abstract:

Electron gyromagnetic motion parallel to the external surface can and will produce internal currents that create magnetic fields of opposite sign to that of the externally-driven cusp field. Only those electrons whose gyro orbits encircle the cusp axis have any net effect on this process. The volume of the diamagnetically-effective electrons is bounded roughly by a torus of major and minor radius equal to the gyro radius in the effective cusp field.
