Ion acceleration by the space charge electric force arising from the radiation pressure in a magnetized electron-positron plasma

Abstract [en]

It is shown that ions can be accelerated by the space charge electric force arising from the separation of electrons and positrons due to the ponderomotive force of the magnetic field-aligned circularly polarized electromagnetic (CPEM) wave in a magnetized electron-positron-ion plasma. The ion acceleration critically depends on the external magnetic field strength. The result is useful in understanding differential ion acceleration in magnetized electron-positron-ion plasmas, such as those in magnetars and in some laboratory experiments that aim to mimic astrophysical environments.
