Abstract:

The stability of a cylindrical cold plasma consisting of electrons only is investigated analytically. The geometry is similar to that of the proposed heavy ion plasma accelerator. The dispersion equation is derived and discussed for the case that the plasma rotates like a rigid body. The resulting instabilities are found to be much more violent than those studied by Buneman et al. for a straight geometry. The underlying physics is discussed. Author
