Formations and existence conditions of electron holes from one-dimensional Vlasov simulations in a collisionless unmagnetized two component plasma are presented. Kinetic simulation results quantitatively confirm the Fast Auroral SnapshoT (FAST) observations of large amplitude (up to 500 mV/m) solitary waves at the edge of the auroral kilometric radiation (AKR) source region.

    The effect of a high magnetic field on the electronic structure of HTSC cuprates is considered. The study is performed in the t- t′- t″- J* model, and the high magnetic field effect is taken into account not only as the Zeeman splitting of the one-electron levels, but also in the...

    Microwave excitation of a high mobility two-dimensional electron gas produces vanishing resistance states in the vicinity of B = [4/(4j + 1)]Bf, where Bf = 2Ï€fm*/e, m* is an effective mass, e is the charge, and f is the microwave frequency. Here, we examine whether (a) characteristic...

    The distribution of currents through a narrow quantum point-contact device in a two-dimensional electron gas threaded by a perpendicular magnetic field is obtained by means of the Keldysh Green’s function formalism in the tight-binding one-electron framework. I show that chiral transport...

    When an electron moves in a smoothly varying non-collinear magnetic structure, its spin orientation adapts constantly, thereby inducing forces that act both on the magnetic structure and on the electron. These forces may be described by electric and magnetic fields of an emergent...
