2. Plasma Waves

Plasma Waves

This module allows you to calculate the phase and group velocities of right- and left-handed plasma waves, their ellipticity, wavelengths, and index of refraction with varying magnetic field strength density and wave frequency. This module treats an electron and multiple-ion plasma (up to four species).

Field strength:
Wave propagation angle:
Ion parameters
Charge state:
Number density:
Normalize plotted velocities to Alfvén speed
Selected frequency normalized to proton gyro frequency:
