Abstract [en]

Plasma processes close to astrophysical shocks result in the amplification of magnetic fields and in the acceleration of electrons.We examine with PIC simulations the magnetic field amplification by the collision of two plasma clouds at a speed 0.5c, each consisting of electrons and ions. A quasi-parallel guiding magnetic field, a cloud density ratio of 10 and a plasma temperature of 25 keV are considered.We demonstrate that the magnetic energy density reaches that of the ions and that electrons are accelerated to highly relativistic speeds.
