Abstract:

In summary, a second order perturbation calculation illustrates the finite nature of the ponderomotive effect near the gyroresonance and is in excellent agreement with detailed experimental observations with test ions. Near the gyrofrequency the ponderomotive potential is a function not only of position but also depends on the velocity of the particles.
