The dispersion relation for the electrostatic waves below the electron plasma frequency in a dense quantum plasma is derived by using the magnetohydrodynamic model. It is shown that in the classical case the dispersion relation reduces to the expression obtained for the well-known Trivelpiece–Gould (TG) modes. Attention is also devoted to the case of solitary waves associated with the nonlinear TG modes.

    We analyze the operation of a resonant detector of terahertz (THz) radiation based on a two-dimensional electron gas (2DEG) channel with split gates. The side gates are used for the excitation of plasma oscillations by incoming THz radiation and control of the resonant plasma frequencies. The...

    Charged dust particles on near-Keplerian orbits in planetary rings drift relative to the corotating background plasma, and this relative streaming may drive dust-modified magnetosonic waves unstable. Using a magnetofluid model, this situation is revisited, and it is shown that a correct...

    The nonlinear interaction of high-power multi-color laser beams in plasmas is investigated numerically. Both the relativistic mass increase and the driven plasma wave contribute to the mutual beam-beam interaction and to the development of the electromagnetic cascade. The propagation of the...

    This paper explores the electron-electron two-stream stability limit of a virtual cathode in spherical geometry. Previous work using a constant density slab model [R. A. Nebel and J. M.
