Adhikari S, Shay MA, Parashar TN, Pyakurel PS, Matthaeus WH, Godzieba D, Stawarz JE, Eastwood JP, Dahlin JTet al., Reconnection from a Turbulence Perspective

The spectral properties associated with laminar, anti-parallel reconnectionare examined using a 2.5D kinetic particle in cell (PIC) simulation. Both thereconnection rate and the energy spectrum exhibit three distinct phases: aninitiation phase where the reconnection rate grows, a quasi-steady phase, and adeclining phase where both the reconnection rate and the energy spectrumdecrease. During the steady phase, the energy spectrum exhibits approximately adouble power-law behavior, with a slope near -5/3 at wavenumbers smaller thanthe inverse ion inertial length, and a slope steeper than -8/3 for largerwavenumbers up to the inverse electron inertial length. This behavior isconsistent with a Kolmogorov energy cascade and implies that laminarreconnection may fundamentally be an energy cascade process. Consistent withthis idea is that the reconnection rate exhibits a rough correlation with theenergy spectrum at wave numbers near the inverse ion inertial length. The 2Dspectrum is strongly anisotropic with most energy associated with the wavevector direction normal to the current sheet. Reconnection acts to isotropizethe energy spectrum, reducing the Shebalin angle from an initial value of 70degrees to about 48 degrees (nearly isotropic) by the end of the simulation.
