Electromagnetic Instabilities Produced by NeutralParticle Ionization in Interplanetary Space

Abstract

This article examines the consequence of the ionization (e.g., photoionization) of a small population of neutral atoms (hydrogen or helium) in interplanetary space. It is found that, even if the density of the newly ionized particles is only a very small fraction of that of the solar wind, these particles can efficiently excite electromagnetic waves by… (More)
