Medical Definition of Vertical instability

1. A type of magnetohydrodynamic (n=0) instability where the plasma drifts vertically upward. Nearly all tokamaks are vertically unstable (all highly shaped ones are). Controlling this instability is possible in many cases, and is an important facet of machine design. Vertical instabilities give rise to halo effects. (09 Oct 1997)
