L.; Pollock, C.; Russell, Christopher T.; Lindqvist, Per-Arne; Avanov, Levon (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      We report measurements of lower-hybrid drift waves driving electron heating and vortical flows in an electron-scale reconnection layer under a guide field. Electrons accelerated by the electrostatic potential of the waves ...
    • Universality of Lower Hybrid Waves at Earth's Magnetopause 

      Graham, D. B.; Khotyaintsev, Yu V; Norgren, Astrid Elisabet Cecilia; Vaivads, Andris; Andre, M.; Drake, J. F.; Egedal, J.; Zhou, M.; Le Contel, O; Webster, J.M.; Lavraud, B.; Kacem, Imed; Génot, V.; Jacquey, C.; Rager, AC; Gershman, Daniel J; Burch, J. L.; Ergun, Robert E (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      Waves around the lower hybrid frequency are frequently observed at Earth's magnetopause and readily reach very large amplitudes. Determining the properties of lower hybrid waves is crucial because they are thought to ...
