Paper Abstract

Plasma behaviors in various magnetic fields were discussed by using the result from a 3D hybrid code. First, an instability of expanding plasma in a uniform magnetic field was discussed by comparing experimental data with numerical result. The effect of magnetic field diffusion on the plasma instability was studied. Second, the plasma behaviors in a dipole field were examined and comparison was made among the experimental data, MHD analysis and the result from the 3D hybrid code. So far, an overall good agreement among these result was found.
