Electrostatic two-stream instabilities play essential roles in an electrostatic collisionless shock formation. They are a key dissipation mechanism and result in ion heating and acceleration. Since the number and energy of the shock-accelerated ions depend on the instabilities, precise identification of the active instabilities is important. Two-dimensional particle-in-cell simulations in a multicomponent plasma reveal ion reflection and acceleration at the shock front, excitation of a…

Self-oscillations excited by two stream ion-ion instability
In an ion beam-plasma system, low frequency self-oscillations are observed when an ion beam with a velocity near the ion acoustic velocity is injected into the plasma. This oscillation has a discrete

The influence of a finite initial ion density gradient on a plasma expansion into a vacuum is studied with a numerical model that takes into account the charge-separation effects and assumes a
Acceleration of collimated 45 MeV protons by collisionless shocks driven in low-density, large-scale gradient plasmas by a 1020 W/cm2, 1 µm laser
TLDR
A new type of proton acceleration stemming from large-scale gradients, low-density targets, irradiated by an intense near-infrared laser is observed, which appears quite effective compared to the standard and commonly used Target Normal Sheath Acceleration technique (TNSA), or more exploratory mechanisms like Radiation Pressure Acceleration (RPA).
