Weibel instability in relativistic quantum plasmas
Umeå University, Faculty of Science and Technology, Department of Physics.
2015 (English)In: Physica Scripta, ISSN 0031-8949, E-ISSN 1402-4896, Vol. 90, no 8, 088003Article in journal, Editorial material (Other academic) Published
Abstract [en]

Generation of quasi-static magnetic fields, due to the Weibel instability is studied in a relativistic quantum plasma. This instability is induced by a temperature anisotropy. The dispersion relation and growth rates for low frequency electromagnetic perturbations are derived using a wavekinetic equation which describes the evolution of the electron Wigner quasi-distribution. The influence of parallel kinetic effects is discussed in detail.
