Besides the ion density, we characterize a plasma by its electron density ne and the . (In many plasma physics texts, the symbol T stands for the product of. Plasma is usually said to be a gas of charged particles. Taken as it is, this definition is not especially useful and, in many cases, proves to be wrong. Yet, two. 1. Brief history of plasma physics. 1. Plasma parameters. 3. Examples of plasmas. 3. Logical framework of plasma physics. 4. Debye shielding.
