Plasma physics. Understanding particle acceleration in astrophysical plasmas.


E nergetic electrons are ubiquitous in astrophysical plasmas, as they are considered to be behind the surges of emission across the electromagnetic spectrum at wavelengths from radio to gamma rays. These dynamic phenomena include stellar flares, supernova explosions (see the figure) ( 1), gamma ray bursts, and extragalactic jets. Energetic electrons are… (More)
