Magnetic Field Turbulence

Magnetorotational instability (MRI) is a crucial mechanism for the amplification of magnetic fields in accretion disks. The video shows a PIC simulation of the evolution of the magnetic field, from MRI to the final turbulent state. The soundtrack is obtained by modulating the spectrum at different moments of the simulation in order to offer the audio experience of turbulence.
