Producing Extreme Effects in Plasma via Resonance
Nathaniel J. Fisch1
1Princeton University
Powerful electromagnetic waves can produce a variety of extreme effects in hot,
fully ionized plasma. Powerful waves can heat plasma to thermonuclear temper-
atures, ignite highly compressed plasma, drive large currents in plasma, process
high-power optical signals, or accelerate particles in plasma to extreme energies.
Conversely, since plasma can handle very high power and very high total energy,
the plasma itself may be the ideal medium for generating or focusing extremely
powerful electromagnetic waves. Through the exploitation of precise wave-particle
or wave-wave resonances, these extreme effects can occur even as the plasma is in
other ways hardly perturbed by the intense waves, or even as the plasma is chaotic
and noisy.
