Electric Microfield Distribution in TwoComponent Plasmas. Theory and Simulations
Abstract
The distribution of the electric microfield at a charged particle moving in a twocomponent plasma is calculated. The theoretical approximations are obtained via the parameter integration technique and using the screened pair approximation for the generalized radial distribution function. It is shown that the twocomponent plasma microfield distribution shows a larger probability of high microfield values than the corresponding distribution of the commonly used OCP model. The theory is checked by quasiclassical moleculardynamics simulations. For the simulations a corrected Kelbg pseudopotential has been used.
