Microelectrostriction in an ionized medium
A new effect is considered, microelectrostriction produced in an ionized medium as a result of contraction of the medium in the electric field of the ions. It is shown that this effect can exceed in magnitude the thermal expansion connected with the ionization losses. Among the phenomena in which this effect can manifest itself or can be revealed are scattering or refraction of light, a non-thermoacoustic behavior of sound emission by charged particles, and others.
