Strathclyde Open Access research that creates ripples...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of research papers by University of Strathclyde researchers, including by Strathclyde physicists involved in observing gravitational waves and black hole mergers as part of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) - but also other internationally significant research from the Department of Physics.

Abstract

The linear dispersion relation for compressional magnetoacoustic waves in a quantum magnetoplasma is derived, taking into account the quantum Bohm potential and the magnetization of electrons due to the electron-1/2 spin effect. It is found that the quantum forces produce the wave dispersion at quantum scales, which depend on the external magnetic field strength.
