The evolution of electric fields in pulsed current-carrying plasmas is an intriguing problem in plasma physics. It is of high importance for studying mechanisms of B-field-plasma interaction, particle acceleration, growth of instabilities and plasma waves. As yet, to the hest of our knowledge, attempts to observe electric fields in such plasmas suffered from various difficulties. In this report we describe a novel application of laser-spectroscopy to investigate the electric fields and the properties of plasm…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
