  • Solitons and Weakly Nonlinear Waves in Plasmas

    Publication Year: 1985, Page(s):53 - 86
    Cited by:  Papers (3)

    Theoretical descriptions of solitons and weakly nonlinear waves propagating in plasma media are reviewed, with particular attention to the Korteweg-de Vries (KDV) equation and the Nonlinear Schrödinger equation (NLS). The modifications of these basic equations due to the effects of resonant particles and external magnetic fields are discussed. View full abstract»

    Current interruption for plasmas is normally a relatively slow business since the switch-off time is controlled by the deionization time for the plasma under zero E-field condition. By using a separate electrode with a reverse current, the cathode spot can be interrupted and the switch off proceeds. The time can be considerably decreased by the continued presence of the E field between anode and c... View full abstract»

  • Comments on Probe-Excited Oblique Ion-Acoustic Waves in a Multidipole Plasma Device

    Low-frequency noise (fci < f < fpi) excited by positively biased probes of various diameters near the magnets in a multidipole plasma device is investigated. It is concluded that the noise is due to the excitation of oblique ion-acoustic waves, i.e., the electrostatic ion-cyclotron waves in the low field limit propagating at large angles to the magnetic field.

  • The Transverse Oscillation of Coaxial Multiple Beams Propagating along a Magnetic Field in a Vacuum Tube

    A fluid Maxwell theory has been derived to study a system of multibeams propagating parallel to an applied axial magnetic field in an evacuated conducting drift tube. The stability analysis is performed for a rigid-rotor and cold-laminar flow equilibria. It is assumed that the particle beams are tenuous and the guiding field is very strong. As a result, the perturbation theory is derived under the... View full abstract»

    It is the purpose of this work to study the propagation of nonlinear wave packets in a plasma-slab condenser system, which can be described as a nonlinear dispersive transmission line. View full abstract»

  • A Graphical and Analytical Method to Determine the Transient Response for an Ideal Transmission Line, Loaded by a Time-Varying Impedance

    Based on Bergeron's theory, a graphical and analytical method has been worked out to determine the dynamic load characteristic and load transients for a time-varying load impedance, pulsed by a lossless transmission line. The analytical solution has been compared with the numerical solution of the network analysis code SCEPTRE. A parametric study for a time-decreasing load function, demonstrated b...

  • Measurement of Plasma Presheath

    The plasma presheath in a multidipole device was measured by an emissive probe using the inflection-point method in the limit of zero emission. The temporal evolution of ion-acoustic waves was also measured. Results are compared. It is shown that the potential in the bulk of the plasma is describable by a simplified version of the plasma-sheath equation. Inclusion of finite ion temperature has a n... View full abstract»
