ECSS-E-ST-10-04C Rev.1


partly or wholly ionized gas whose particles exhibit collective response to magnetic and electric fields


  • NOTE The collective motion is brought about by the electrostatic Coulomb force between charged particles. This causes the particles to rearrange themselves to counteract electric fields within a distance of the order of the Debye length. On spatial scales larger than the Debye length plasmas are electrically neutral.
