Physics of Intense Beams in Plasmas

  title={Physics of Intense Beams in Plasmas},
  author={M. V. Nezlin},
Introduction and general overview. Aperiodic beam instabilities (theory). Oscillatory beam instabilities (theory). Beam instabilities as a result of active coupling between waves of different signs of energy. Electron, ion and plasma beams in laboratory plasma. Experimental data on instabilities and limiting currents of electron, ion and plasma beams. Mechanisms of current limitations (disruption) in beams. Acceleration and heating of plasma ions in a regime close to the limiting beam current… CONTINUE READING
