Eigenmode stability analysis of drift-mirror modes in nonuniform plasmas

Klimushkin, D. Yu.; Chen, L.

Drift-mirror modes in a one-dimensional inhomogeneous model of the magnetosphere are studied by employing gyrokinetics, taking into account finite Larmor radius effects. A wave equation is derived which describes both the spatial structure of the modes, and its eigenvalue yields a growth rate of the mode. The finite Larmor radius effects are shown to raise the instability threshold especially for high- m waves, and lead to wave propagation across field lines.
