Abstract [en]

It is shown that the ponderomotive force of magnetic-field aligned circularly polarized electromagnetic waves can create space charge electric fields in a magnetized electron-positron-ion plasma. The space charge electric fields can; in turn, accelerate ions. Possible applications to the origin of energetic ions in laboratory plasmas and astrophysical settings axe discussed.
