The influence of impurities on the dissipative trapped-ion instability is investigated considering all possible cases of ion impurities in the banana, plateau or Pfirsch-Schluter regimes. It is found that impurities lead to very significant stabilizing effects on these modes. In particular, the instability is quenched when the impurities are in the Pfirsch-Schluter regime, and also for plateau impurities, provided the impurity density gradients are directed as the main plasma density gradient… CONTINUE READING
