Electron density fluctuations in a plasma by Edwin E Salpeter( Book )
2 editions published in 1960 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
The spatial Fourier transform P is considered for wave vector k of the charge distribution of the electrons in a plasma with particle density n, electron and ion temperatures T and T sub i, and Debye length D. We assume the absence of a magnetic field, neglect collisions, and assume n/D cubed is greater than 1. The statistical average of P squared is calculated as a function of a equals 1/kD assuming complete thermodynamic equilibrium; that component of P squared, which keeps in phase with the ion charge density fluctuations is also calculated. The frequency spectrum of the time-varying function P is obtained at thermal equilibrium and simplified, assuming the ion mass to be much larger than the electron mass, for general values of a and T/T sub i. For small a the main component of the spectrum has the characteristic Doppler broadening shape corresponding to the electron's thermal velocity. For large a we have a component with narrow width corresponding roughly to the ion-velocity Doppler spread and very narrow side bands at plus and minus the frequency of electrostatic plasma oscillations.

Incoherent scatter from plasma oscillations in the ionosphere ( Book )
1 edition published in 1965 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
In radar incoherent scatter investigations of the ionosphere, theory predicts that a small amount of power will be returned in a pair of sharp lines separated from the transmitted frequency by the electron plasma frequency. These 'plasma' lines are caused by scattering from longitudinal, electrostatic plasma oscillations. The observation of the plasma-line signal is reported and its large variation in intensity is discussed in terms of a nonequilibrium theory that allows for the presence of energetic photoelectrons.

The interstellar abundance of the hydrogen molecule: i. basic processes ( Book )
1 edition published in 1963 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
An analysis is given of the various processes which determine the molecular concentration in H I cloudshe most important mechanism for forming molecular hydrogen is association on the surface of the interstellar grains, the characteristic time for conversion to molecular form being about 100 million years. It is shown that the range of grain temperatures where this recombination reaction is efficient is coincident with the range 5-20 K which is expected to result from the interaction with the interstellar radiation field. It is estimated that the efficiency (recombination coefficient) of the process is between 0.1 and 1. Regarding dissociative processes, photodissociation through the forbidden transition between the two Heitler London states of the molecule, previously thought to be most important, is shown to be negligible. Ionization and dissociation of a cloud by random encounters with O and B stars occurs about once every 100 million years, so that if the grain recombination process is operative a balance results in which the molecular abundance is roughly comparable to the observed atomic concentration. The cooling properties of molecular hydrogen are discussed. (Author)
