Transverse ion acceleration and ion conic formation in a divergent‐field laboratory plasma
Physics of Plasmas
The results of laboratory experiments at the U ni versity of California at Irvine are presented in which multidimensional ion velocity distributions in the presence of radio-frequency (RF) waves and a spatially divergent external magnetic field are observed. A plasma volume is subjected to either local or nonlocal electrostatic turbulence, which in tum is responsible for accelerating the ions transverse to the confining magnetic field. The ions flow away from the source of turbulence in adoi:10.1063/1.870999 fatcat:tqx7jfklbzdu5erwtgxbukt4da
