    • Abstract

       

      The full wavevector and frequency dependent complex dielectric function for two component classical and quantum rare hot plasmas have been derived. The real part of dielectric function is obtained in the form of a series. Difference between quantum and classical real and imaginary parts of dielectric function have been brought out by making explicit calculations. The quantum nature of the plasma brings about significant changes in both parts depending upon the magnitude of quantum parameter,R (= 8.93(λth)/λ).

      Expressions for the dynamic structure factors for both two component classical and quantum plasma have been evaluated for different values of the mass of the positive componentm+, temperature T+ and wavevector k. It is found that the plasma exhibits well defined collective modes for certain values of ¦k¦ accompanied by varying disorder which depends upon the values of m+ as well as on ¦k¦ and T+. For the quantum case the collective modes are less well defined as compared to the corresponding classical case, thus proving that quantum nature introduces inherent disorder in the system. But for both the cases, increase in temperature destroys collective modes. Another feature is the appearance of a hump near Ω = 0 which becomes smaller and vanishes as the quantum parameter is decreased.

      Instability of plasma modes in the presence of constant electric field has also been worked out for the quantum case.
