In this response, we conceptually and quantitatively demonstrate that the criticism in the Comment by Maraghechi and Salehi [Phys. Plasmas 17, 084701 (2010)] is unacceptable and the following conclusions obtained in our previous paper do hold on: (1) the self-fields of the electron beam have an effect of stabilizing the electron’s dynamic behavior and (2) the adiabatic magnetic field of a linearly polarized one-dimensional planar wiggler has trivial influence to the stability of the electron’s dynamic behavior, although it is helpful to the electrons to enter the cavity smoothly.

    Zhang and Elgin [Phys. Plasmas 11, 1663 (2004)] studied the dynamical stability of electron trajectories in a free-electron laser (FEL). We have shown that their trajectories are not confined and diverge when self-fields are included or when the adiabatic wiggler magnetic field is removed....

    In this work, an analysis of magnetic perturbations in the GOL-3 experiment is given. In GOL-3, plasma is collectively heated in a multiple-mirror trap by a high-power electron beam. During the beam injection, the beam-plasma interaction maintains a high-level microturbulence. This provides an...

    According to many scientists, there are some redundancies in the 57 system of units. Through an entropy approach that depends on a previous analogy between the electrical, mechanical and thermal fields; it was possible to introduce a system of units that removes such redundancies. According to...

    A nonquasineutral vortex structure with a zero net current is described that arises as a result of electron drift in crossed magnetic and electric fields, the latter being produced by charge separation on a spatial scale of about the magnetic Debye radius r B = | B|/(4Ï€ en e ). In such a...
