In an effort to better understand plasma transport, we measure fluctuations associated with drift instabilities resolved in the ion phase-space. Primary attention is given to fluctuations near the electron drift frequency where there are two general components to the observed fluctuations. From two (spatial) point measurements of the ion distribution function with a variable separation along the magnetic field, a number of statistical measures of the fluctuations are calculated including cross-correlation and cross-bicoherence. Both fluid (omega/k >>upsilon(ti)) and kinetic (omega/k similar to upsilon(ti)) components are observed in the fluctuations. The nonlinear interactions are found to depend strongly on the ion particle velocity.


Short-range correlations in a one-dimensional electron gas
Tas, M; Tomak, Mehmet (American Physical Society (APS), 2003-06-15)
We use the Singwi-Sjolander-Tosi-Land (SSTL) approximation to investigate the short-range correlations in a one-dimensional electron gas. We find out that the SSTL approximation satisfies the compressibility sum rule somewhat better than the more widely used Singwi-Tosi-Land-Sjolander approximation in the case of a one-dimensional electron gas.
Slip-flow heat transfer in microtubes with axial conduction and viscous dissipation - An extended Graetz problem
Cetin, Barbaros; Güvenç Yazıcıoğlu, Almıla; KAKAÇ, SADIK (Elsevier BV, 2009-09-01)
This study is an extension of the Graetz problem to include the rarefaction effect, viscous dissipation term and axial conduction with constant-wall-heat-flux thermal boundary condition. The energy equation is solved analytically by using general eigenfunction expansion. The temperature distribution and the local Nusselt number are determined in terms of confluent hypergeometric functions. The effects of the rarefaction, axial conduction and viscous dissipation on the local Nusselt number are discussed in t...
Quantum statistical effects on fusion dynamics of heavy ions
Ayik, S; Yilmaz, B; Gokalp, A; Yılmaz, Osman; Takigawa, N (American Physical Society (APS), 2005-05-01)
To describe the fusion of two very heavy nuclei at near barrier energies, a generalized Langevin approach is proposed. The approach incorporates the quantum statistical fluctuations in accordance with the fluctuation and dissipation theorem. It is illustrated that the quantum statistical effects introduce an enhancement of the formation of a compound nucleus, though the quantum enhancement is somewhat less pronounced as indicated in the previous calculations.
Ion-matrix sheaths inside cylindrical bores with small radii and longitudinal grooves
Demokan, O (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2004-02-01)
In this paper, ion-matrix sheaths inside infinitely long cylindrical bores with longitudinal grooves are studied analytically to optimize ion implantation, concerning a broad range of industrial products. The radius of the cylindrical target is assumed to be less than the sheath length to simulate realistic targets, such as barrels and muzzles. The potential profiles inside and outside the grooves are derived and the ion velocity components inside the grooves are estimated. Finally, suggestions for improvin...
Optical Characterization of Amorphous Hydrogenated Carbon (a-C:H) Thin Films Prepared by Single RF Plasma Method
Mansuroğlu, Doğan; GÖKŞEN, KADİR; Bilikmen, Sinan (IOP Publishing, 2015-06-01)
Methane (CH4) plasma was used to produce amorphous hydrogenated carbon (a-C:H) films by a single capacitively coupled radio frequency (RF) powered plasma system. The system consists of two parallel electrodes: the upper electrode is connected to 13.56 MHz RF power and the lower one is connected to the ground. Thin films were deposited on glass slides with different sizes and on silicon wafers. The influence of the plasma species on film characteristics was studied by changing the plasma parameters. The chan...
