Title: Study of the development of relativistic plasma bunches in a long mirror trap by optical and X-ray imaging and numerical simulations

Abstract

The work presents experimental results demonstrating the feasibility of autoresonance acceleration of electrons in a long mirror trap with a reverse magnetic field. It is shown that gyromagnetic autoresonance results in the formation of a plasma bunch with average electron energy of several hundred keV, which is confined for a long time in the trap. The results of computer simulations of the regime of reverse gyromagnetic autoresonance agree well with the experimental data.
