Microinstability

microinstability

(Science: radiobiology) instabilities due to particle / kinetic- theoretical effects, typically occuring on small scales, as opposed to those derivable from fluid models valid on larger scales. As with other instabilities, these are driven by various types of available free energy. (See also kinetic theory.)
