The role of solar wind expansion in generating whistler waves is investigated using the EB-iPic3D code, which models solar wind expansion self-consistently within a fully kinetic semi-implicit approach. The simulation is initialized with an electron velocity distribution function modeled after observations of the Parker Solar Probe during its first perihelion at 0.166 au, consisting of a dense core and an antisunward strahl. This distribution function is initially stable with respect to kinetic instabilities. Expansion drive ...

We present results of a two-dimensional fully kinetic particle-in-cell simulation in order to shed light on the role of whistler waves in the scattering of strahl electrons and in the heat-flux regulation in the solar wind. We model the electron velocity distribution function as initially composed of core and strahl populations as typically encountered in the near-Sun solar wind as observed by Parker Solar Probe. We demonstrate that, as a consequence of the evolution of the electron velocity distribution function (VDF), two ...

The inner magnetosphere including the radiation belt and ring current environment is replete with high-frequency fluctuations with peak intensity occurring near upper-hybrid frequency and/or multiple harmonic electron cyclotron frequencies above and below the upper-hybrid frequency. Past and contemporary spacecraft missions, including the Van Allen Probes, were designed to detect the electric field spectrum only for these high-frequency fluctuations. Making use of the recently formulated generalized theory of electromagne ...

NASA\textquoterights Parker Solar Probe (PSP) spacecraft (formerly Solar Probe Plus) is scheduled for launch in July 2018 with a planned heliocentric orbit that will carry it on a series of close passes by the Sun with perihelion distances that eventually will get below 10 solar radii. Among other in-situ and imaging sensors, the PSP payload includes the two-instrument \textquotedblleftIntegrated Science Investigation of the Sun\textquotedblright suite, which will make coordinated measurements of energetic ions and electr ...
