    Abstract : Theoretical studies of dusty plasmas have been performed by focusing attention principally on collective phenomena and on grain motion. This thesis consists of a collection of seven published papers that explore both the collective behavior of a complex plasma system as well as the dynamics of grains in plasmas. READ MORE

  2. 2. Waves and instabilities in quantum plasmas

    University dissertation from Umeå : Fysik

    Author : Shahid Ali; Umeå universitet.; [2008]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Quantum mechanical effects; dusty plasma; linear and nonlinear waves; instabilities; nonlinear wave interactions; density gradients; magnetoplasmas.; NATURAL SCIENCES Physics Geocosmophysics and plasma physics Plasma physics; NATURVETENSKAP Fysik Geokosmofysik och plasmafysik Plasmafysik;

    Abstract : The study of waves and instabilities in quantum plasmas is of fundamental importance for understanding collective interactions in superdense astrophysical objects, in high intense laser-plasma/solid-matter interactions, in microelectronic devices and metallic nanostructures. In dense quantum plasmas, there are new pressure laws associated with the Fermi-Dirac distribution functions and new quantum forces associated with the quantum Bohm potential and the Bohr magnetization involving electron ½ spin.

  3. 3. The Klimontovich description of complex plasma systems Low frequency electrostatic modes, spectral densities of fluctuations and collision integrals

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Panagiotis Tolias; KTH.; [2012]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; complex plasmas; dusty plasmas; Klimontovich equations; kinetic theory; dust acoustic waves; collision integrals;

    Abstract : Plasmas seeded with solid particulates of nanometer to micron sizes (complex plasma systems) are a ubiquitous feature of intergalactic, interstellar and planetary environments but also of plasma processing applications or even fusion devices.Their novel aspects compared with ideal multi-component plasmas stem from (i) the large number of elementary charges residing on the grain surface, (ii) the variability of the charge over mass ratio of the dust component, (iii) the inherent openness and dissipative nature of such systems.

  4. 4. Generation of magnetic fields in plasmas

    University dissertation from Umeå Universitet

    Author : Nitin Shukla; Umeå universitet.; [2012]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Relativistic and non-relativistic plasma outflows are quite ubiquitous in astrophysical scenarios, as well as in laboratory plasmas. The propagation of relativistic and non- relativistic charged particle beams in background plasmas provides return currents in the opposite direction and interactions between the currents then drive several plasma instabilities involving the longitudinal (electrostatic instabilities) and trans- verse (electromagnetic instability) modes.
