Focus and Coverage

Physics of Plasmas, published by AIP Publishing in cooperation with the APS Division of Plasma Physics, is committed to the publication of original research in all areas of experimental, computational, and theoretical plasma physics. Physics of Plasmas publishes comprehensive and in-depth review manuscripts and forward-looking perspectives covering important areas of study and Special Topics highlighting new and cutting-edge developments in plasma physics. Every year a special issue publishes the invited and review papers from the most recent meeting of the APS Division of Plasma Physics.

Research Article
Christoph Pitzal, Andreas Stegmeir et al.
The Landau-fluid closure for parallel heat fluxes is implemented in the edge turbulence fluid code GRILLIX, replacing the previously used collisional Braginskii closure (with limiters). This extends ...

We study large-amplitude, very oblique Alfvén waves at low β, with small gradient length scales, comparable to the ion inertial scale di. Such waves have large density fluctuations and slight ...

A Hamiltonian formalism for studying the dynamics of a dust particle with variable electric charge in dusty plasma is proposed. The Hamiltonian and the equations of motion are presented, and the ...

In recent years, the effort to develop practical fusion energy has rapidly evolved from a focus on only tokamak and laser inertial devices to include a wide array of approaches. We survey this ...

Both space charge and dispersion have an effect on high-intensity beams in circular accelerators or transport sections with bending magnets and may lead to emittance growth and beam loss. In this ...

Whistlers are magnetized plasma waves in planetary magnetospheres. Bounded whistlers, known as helicons, can create high-density laboratory plasmas. We demonstrate reversal of the plasma discharge ...
