Off-resonant RF heating of strongly magnetized electrons in ultracold neutral plasma
Magnetic fields are common in many plasma systems. Ultracold neutral plasmas (UCPs) are capable of not only accessing strong Coulomb coupling physics but also strong and extreme electron magnetization regimes, as well. These magnetization regimes, as defined by Baalrud and Daligault [S. Baalrud and J. Daligault, Phys. Rev. E, 96, 043202 (2017)], are predicted to modify screening or binary collision properties as the electron cyclotron radius approaches or subceeds the relevant plasma length scales. UCPs provide an advantageous testing ground for measuring magnetized electron-ion interactions, ...
