Probing plasmas with ion acoustic waves

Abstract:

Since Langmuir's pioneering studies, low temperature plasma studies have evolved from single positive ion species plasmas, to plasmas with combinations of positive and negative ions in addition to electrons, to plasmas with very heavy negative dust ions. The use of ion acoustic waves, first recognized by Langmuir, as a diagnostic of plasma parameters based on wave frequency, wavelength and phase velocity data in a wide variety of low temperature plasmas, is reviewed. Dispersion relations for ...
