Flow oscillations in radial expansion of an inhomogeneous plasma layer
2011 (English)In: Physics Letters A, ISSN 0375-9601, Vol. 375, no 27, 2629-2636 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
The cylindrically symmetric radial evolution of an inhomogeneous plasma layer expanding into vacuum is investigated nonperturbatively by first determining the spatial structure of the plasma flow structure. The evolution is then governed by a set of ordinary differential equations. The effect of the plasma inhomogeneity on the nonlinear coupling among the electron and ion flow components and oscillations is investigated
