Perpendicular electron cyclotron resonance heating by ordinary modes

S. P. Kuo, B. R. Cheo

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Electron heating at resonance by the ordinary mode is analyzed. The equations of motion are integrated along the resonance trajectory showing no parallel heating. Evolution of the distribution functions shows that T grows exponentially in t2 for second harmonic heating and algebraically at the fundamental.
