Dipole plasma exhibits strong heterogeneities in field strength, density, temperature and other parameters, while maintaining a holistic balance. Our study of the internal structures reveals the fundamental self-organizing mechanisms operating in their simplest realization (as commonly observed in astronomical systems). Three new findings are reported from the RT-1 experiment. The creation of a high-energy electron core (similar to the radiation belts in planetary magnetospheres) is observed...[Show more]
