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.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
