Romain Meyrand, ”post-doc” reseacher at LPP winner of Plas@par labex picture contest

The award-winning picture is a visualization of the result of a direct three-dimensional numerical simulation of turbulence, in a strongly magnetized plasma. The aim of Romain Meyrand’s work is to understand a physics phenomenon, the formation of coherent structures and the associated intermittency, this in a the context of Alvenic turbulence. The used simulation code is a magnetohydrodynamics one, having a spatial resolution equal to 2024x2048x128 points. The turbulent structures shown are those of the electric current in a plane perpendicular to the mean magnetic field. A next step might be to use those results to interpret electromagnetic turbulence observed in the solar wind.
