Solitons and ionospheric heating Journal Article uri icon



  • For parameters characterizing the Platteville ionospheric heating facility, the Langmuir wave evolution at the exact reflection point of the heater wave involves an oscillating two‐stream instability followed by a collisionally damped three‐dimensional soliton collapse. The result provides an alternative explanation for certain experimental observations.
