The generation of broadband multiharmonic spectra of electrostatic ion-cyclotron waves is demonstrated in a magnetized laboratory plasma in which shear in the magnetic-field-aligned (parallel) ion flow and a relative parallel electron drift are present. Shear correlates with an increased number of harmonics and a decreased electron drift speed. Wave and(More)
We report the first observation of a weak ferromagnetic state of Cr in Cr/Ru(0001) superlattices, based on magnetic hysteresis and corroborated by x-ray magnetic circular dichroism at the CrL(2,3) edges. In situ reflection high-energy electron diffraction, x-ray diffraction, and Cr K-edge polarized x-ray absorption investigations have shown that the Cr(More)
In this paper, we advance a nonlinear control design concept based on backstepping, adjusted so that it might be used for a wider class of dynamical systems than the so-called strict-feedback form. Possible applications concern magnetic levitation systems, one of which will be used, in this paper, to design the proposed controller. Theoretical aspects(More)
The predicted shear-induced shift of the wave phase velocity, the essence of the shear-modified ion-acoustic (SMIA) instability mechanism that reduces ion Landau damping for otherwise damped ion-acoustic waves [V. Gavrishchaka et al., 80, 728 (1998)], is verified with direct measurements in a strongly magnetized laboratory plasma. The SMIA growth rate is(More)
