Kinetic treatment of magnetized and collisionless plasma near a wall

Abstract:

Charged particles gyrate around magnetic field lines, a property that is exploited to confine plasma in magnetic confinement fusion devices. Typically, the gyroradius is small compared to the system size and thus the gyromotion can be averaged out. The resulting charged particle motion closely follows a magnetic field line. At the edge of fusion devices, the magnetic field usually impinges on a wall at a shallow angle. A boundary layer forms in which the plasma density changes over a chara...
