Langmuir vacuum and superconductivity

  • B. A. Veklenko
Low-Temperature Plasma


It is shown that, in the “jelly” model of cold electron-ion plasma, the interaction between electrons and the quantum electromagnetic vacuum of Langmuir waves involves plasma superconductivity with an energy gap proportional to the energy of the Langmuir quantum.
