Suppressed heat conductivity in the intracluster medium: implications for the magneto-thermal instability

30 Jun 2020Thomas BerlokEliot QuataertMartin E. PessahChristoph Pfrommer

In the outskirts of the intracluster medium (ICM) in galaxy clusters, the temperature decreases with radius. Due to the weakly collisional nature of the plasma, these regions are susceptible to the magneto-thermal instability (MTI), which can sustain turbulence and provide turbulent pressure support in the ICM...
