Shocks in an electronegative plasma with Boltzmann negative ions and κ-distributed trapped electrons

Publication date: Available online 24 April 2019Source: Physics Letters AAuthor(s): Shaukat Ali Shan, Nadia ImtiazAbstractWe derived a Schamel-Burgers equation to study the dynamics of nonlinear structures in dissipative electronegative plasma having Boltzmann negative ions and κ- distributed trapped electrons. A recently introduced Tangent hyperbolic method has been employed to get the solutions of the differential equations which contain fractional nonlinearity. The effects of different physical parameters particularly, the kinematic viscosity, the superthermality, the trapping efficiency and the electronegativity factor on the ion acoustic (IA) shock profiles have been elaborated. In case of non-dissipative electronegative plasma, the small amplitude double layers (DLs) have also been investigated. It has been elaborated that the DLs strongly depend on the system parameters. The results illustrate that the superthermality index and trapping parameter play disruptive role in the formation of DLs. Likewise, the electronegativity factor plays a dominant role in the shaping of the compressive DLs. The study can be supportive to understand the behavior of nonlinear structures as observed in the nature and laboratory plasmas.
