Plasma potential formation due to local electron cyclotron resonance (ECR) along diverging magnetic-field lines is investigated by using a two-and-a-half dimensional particle simulation. When an electromagnetic wave for ECR is applied to a plasma flow, a potential drop in the downstream region from the ECR point is enhanced. In the case of the small wave… (More)
