Novel plasma acceleration method using transverse rotating magnetic field (RMF) was proposed and investigated using small pre-experimental setup. Interaction between the steady azimuthal current driven by the RMF and the radial bias field will generate axial electromagnetic force, which is expected to provide effective plasma acceletation. Plasma with density of <i>n<sub>e</sub></i> > 3 × 10<sup>18</sup>[m<sup>-3</sup>] generated by the RMF was observed to have axial internal magnetic field, which is considered to be generated by the azimuthal current of electrons rotating synchronously with the RMF.
