Comparison of (left) measured and (right) simulated plasma in a Penning discharge with axial magnetic field (towards the screen) and radial electric field (towards the center of the figure). Observed large-scale plasma structures (e.g. ExB rotating spoke) conducting enhanced electron cross-field current.
