plasma wave

plasma wave

[′plaz·mə ‚wāv]
(plasma physics)
A disturbance of a plasma involving oscillation of its constituent particles and of an electromagnetic field, which propagates from one point in the plasma to another without net motion of the plasma.

The magnetosphere is home to a type of plasma wave known as whistler mode chorus.
The team made the findings using data from Cassini's Radio and Plasma Wave Science (RPWS) instrument package collected during its final months as it entered Saturn's vast ionosphere.
Two instruments extended out beyond the dish's edge: its magnetometer and the Radio and Plasma Wave Science (RPWS) detector.
A partir de 2014 se utilizaron las ondas de radio del RADAR (Radio Detection and Ranging Instrument) y otros equipos como el RPWS (Radio and Plasma Wave Science Instrument) que lleva la sonda Cassini, para crear mapas de la superficie del satelite y de sus elevaciones y depresiones (montanas y canones), asi como para medir su temperatura.
In the preceding review article (1) on laser wakefield acceleration, a plain explanation for generation and particle acceleration by laser wakefields has been given, based on an analogical one-dimensional plasma wave model.
The artist, who has long been fascinated by space, discovered a NASA recording of sounds derived from the plasma wave detector on the Voyager craft as it traveled through waves of electrons in ionized gas.
They cover diagnostics of plasma perturbations by using Doppler radio sounding, diagnostics of plasma wave disturbance by incoherent scatter and Doppler radars, diagnostics of geomagnetic disturbances, rocket burn and launch and radio communication, and ecological problems in near-the-earth space activity.
However, an analysis of data from Voyager's plasma wave science instrument between April 9 and May 22 this year showed the spacecraft was in a region with an electron density of about 0.

The resulting pattern of charges forms a plasma wave, which contains a strong electric field.
The laser-generated plasma wave, created in the gas, can support much higher electrical fields than an RF-linac, says Umstadter.
TU4C-1 will discuss 140-GHz fundamental mode VCO and a 324-GHz quadruple pushed VCO in 90-nm CMOS, a 410-GHz push-push VCO in 45-nm CMOS, and 180-GHz Schottky diode and 780-GHz plasma wave detectors in 130-nm CMOS, which have been demonstrated.
