The kinetic theory for the cylindrical plasma, produced by the cylindrical azimuthally symmetric (azimuthal mode number m 0 = 0) helicon wave, is developed with accounting for the radial inhomogeneity of the helicon wave field and of a plasma in cylindrical geometry. This theory reveals macroscale effect of the steady azimuthal rotation of electrons with a radially inhomogeneous angular velocity, caused by radially inhomogeneous electric field of the helicon wave. It is found that this sheared…

Ion-acoustic turbulence in the skin layer of the inductively coupled plasma

The theory of the nonmodal ion-acoustic instability in the skin layer of the inductively coupled plasma (ICP) is developed. This instability has time dependent growth rate and is driven by the
