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. Discover why Strathclyde's physics research is making ripples...

Strathprints also exposes world leading research from the Faculties of Science, Engineering, Humanities & Social Sciences, and from the Strathclyde Business School.

Cyclotron maser radiation from astrophysical shocks

Abstract

One of the most popular coherent radio emission mechanisms is electron cyclotron maser instability. In this article we demonstrate that electron cyclotron maser emission is directly associated with particular types of charged particle acceleration such as turbulence and shocks commonly inferred in astrophysical plasmas.
