Collective Scattering in Gases and Plasmas

Part of the CISM International Centre for Mechanical Sciences book series (CISM, volume 349)


Plasmas are made of small size charged particles, that behave according to the reciprocal Lorentz-Maxwell electrodynamics: From Lorentz forces, particles are accelerated by electromagnetic field; and in turn, charged particle acceleration creates new e.m. waves. These new e.m. waves are especially of concern, since they might bring informations to an external observer. The radiation coming out of a plasma is the most natural observation means.
