Multi-species measurements of the firehose and mirror instability thresholds in the solar wind

Abstract:

Thefirehose and mirror instabilities are thought to arise in a variety of space and astrophysical plasmas, constraining the pressure anisotropies and drifts between particle species. The plasma stability depends on all species simultaneously, meaning that a combined analysis is required. Here, we present thefirst such analysis in the solar wind, using the long-wavelength stability parameters to combine the anisotropies and drifts of all major species(core and beam protons, alphas, and elec...
