Abstract

The dynamical response of a homogeneous plasma to the simultaneous application of an RF power source and an opposing d.c. electric field is investigated by means of a 2-D + 2-D quasilinear code. The code evolves in time the electron distribution function, f(v-, v-, t) and the corresponding self-consistently generated wave spectral distribution W(K-, k-, t), both in two dimensions. The time evolution of the most relevant physical quantities, in particular the plasma current can therefore be straightforwardly evaluated.
