We present a new, fully kinetic mechanism of generation of spatial magnetic vortices that results from the resonant wave-particle interaction in a plasma. This phenomenon is of basic theoretical interest. It can be responsible for the magnetic vortices observed in numerical simulations in the wake of an ultrastrong, ultraintense laser pulse in an underdense plasma.

Abstract

We present a new, fully kinetic mechanism of generation of spatial magnetic vortices that results from the resonant wave-particle interaction in a plasma. This phenomenon is of basic theoretical interest. It can be responsible for the magnetic vortices observed in numerical simulations in the wake of an ultrastrong, ultraintense laser pulse in an underdense plasma.
