Instability of Goldreich-Julian configurations: Demonstrations based on the simulation of self-consistant magnetospheres for the static aligned case
We demonstrate that the classic Goldreich-Julian neutron star magnetosphere is flawed. Firstly, we show that the Goldreich-Julian solution is not unique. Secondly, we demonstrate the instability of a truncated Goldreich-Julian ...
Development of an ion/electron plasma spectrometer
This thesis details the development of the Miniaturized Electrostatic DUal top-hat Spherical Analyzer (MEDUSA) instrument, including calibration, simulation, and data processing software. MEDUSA combines two-species ...
