Generation of quasi-stationary magnetic fields by external electromagnetic radiation in a cold magneto-active plasma

  • Yu. M. Aliev (a1), B. M. Jovanović (a1) and A. A. Frolov (a1)


Starting from the hydrodynamic equations for a cold electron fluid, we develop a theory of the ponderomotive effect of the interaction of high-frequency electromagnetic radiation with a magneto-active plasma. Using the method of averaging on high-frequency oscillations, we obtain expressions for the low- frequency nonlinear currents. We also obtain an equation describing the space–time evolution of a quasi-stationary magnetic field in the plasma.
