Dynamic Chaos of Plasma Ions in Electrostatic-Waves

Chaos generated by the interaction between charged particles and electrostatic plasma waves has been observed in a linear magnetized plasma. The macroscopic wave properties, the kinetic ion dielectric response, and the microscopic heating mechanisms have been investigated via optical diagnostic techniques based on laser-induced fluorescence. Observations of test-particle dynamical evolution indicate an exponential separation of initially close ion trajectories.
