Abstract

The effects of equilibrium electrostatic potential and magnetic drift on the growth rate of the dissipative trapped electron instability are investigated. The formulation of E. Ott and W. Manheimer is extended to the lower collision frequency regime by including the magnetic drift. In the lower collision frequency regime, electrostatic trapping has a smaller destabilization effect than in the collisional limit considered by Ott and Manheimer.
