  1. 1. Space Plasma Dynamics : Instabilities, Coherent Vortices and Covariant Parametrization

    Författare :David Sundkvist; Jan-Erik Wahlund; Andris Vaivads; Stuart Bale; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Space and plasma physics; space physics; plasma; instabilities; turbulence; coherent structures; vortex; self-organization; magnetosphere; waves; electromagnetism; covariant; space instrumentation; Rymd- och plasmafysik; Space physics; Rymdfysik;

    Sammanfattning : The magnetospheric cusps are two funnel-like regions of Earth's magnetosphere where solar wind plasma can have direct access to the ionosphere. The cusps are very dynamic regions where wave-particle interactions continuously take place and redistribute energy among different particle populations. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Plasma properties in high power impulse magnetron sputtering

    Författare :Daniel Lundin; Ulf Helmersson; Jon Tomas Gudmundsson; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; HiPIMS; HPPMS; plasma; plasma transport; plasma instabilities; Plasma physics; Plasmafysik;

    Sammanfattning : The work presented in this thesis involves experimental and theoretical studies related to plasma properties in high power impulse magnetron sputtering (HiPIMS), and more specifically plasma transport. HiPIMS is an ionized PVD method based on conventional direct current magnetron sputtering (dcMS). LÄS MER

  3. 3. There and back again... An Earth magneto-tale : understanding plasma flows in the magnetotail

    Författare :Alexandre De Spiegeleer; Maria Hamrin; Herbert Gunell; Timo Pitkänen; Colin Forsyth; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Plasma dynamics; Earth magnetosphere; magnetotail; plasma sheet flows; oscillatory flows; burst bulk flows; tailward flows; rymdfysik; Space Physics; rymd- och plasmafysik; Space and Plasma Physics;

    Sammanfattning : On average, the Earth's magnetotail plasma sheet seems to be a calm region of the magnetosphere where the plasma moves slowly towards Earth. However, the plasma sheet actually hosts many phenomena, some of which can affect Earth. LÄS MER

  4. 4. A study of the structure and dynamics of Saturn's inner plasma disk

    Författare :Mika Holmberg; Jan-Erik Wahlund; Nikolai Piskunov; Svetlana Ratynskaia; Thomas Cravens; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Planetary magnetospheres; Saturn; magnetospheric dynamics; Saturn s inner plasma disk; ring plasma; ion densities; ion velocities; dayside nightside asymmetry; ion loss rates; Cassini; Langmuir probe; RPWS; Space Physics; Rymdfysik;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis presents a study of the inner plasma disk of Saturn. The results are derived from measurements by the instruments on board the Cassini spacecraft, mainly the Cassini Langmuir probe (LP), which has been in orbit around Saturn since 2004. LÄS MER

  5. 5. The Polar Cusp and its Ionospheric footprint : Dynamics and Transients

    Författare :Frédéric Pitout; Ryoichi Fujii; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Space and plasma physics; Solar wind - magnetosphere - ionosphère interactions; polar ionosphere; Rymd- och plasmafysik; Space physics; Rymdfysik; Space Physics; rymdfysik;

    Sammanfattning : The magnetopause, the boundary layer between the solar wind and the Earth’s magnetosphere, is not closed as we have long thought. Transfers of energy, particles and momentum from the solar wind to the magnetosphere actually take place. LÄS MER
