Abstract: AbstractWe evaluated ambipolar diffusion velocity in a magnetar. Previous studies concerning ambipolar diffusion ignored the presence of the crust, although a magnetar has both core and crust. We considered both core and crust and examined the influence of the crust in this study. We found that the crustal magnetic field can accelerate the ambipolar diffusion in its core.
