Radial compression and torque-balanced steady states of single-component plasmas in Penning-Malmberg trapsa ...


Penning-Malmberg traps provide an excellent method to confine single-component plasmas. Specially tailored, high-density plasmas can be created in these devices by the application of azimuthally phased rf fields i.e., the so-called “rotating wall” technique . Recently, we reported a regime of compression of electron or positron plasmas in which the plasma… (More)
