Summary and Future Plans Significant progresses have been made in developing a simulation model of ion cyclotron turbulence generated by a velocity ring distribution Initial simulation predictions of energy extraction efficiency are consistent with predictions from previous work (Mikhailovskii

et al., 1989) Model may be used to study a variety of velocity ring EM instability mechanisms from various chemical releases (Li, Ba, ect.) Future work Refine the current electromagnetic EM hybrid PIC code for more direct comparisons of the NRL mechanism Complete the implementation of a electrostatic ES hybrid PIC model with electron inertia for studying energy extraction associated with lower hybrid turbulence from chemical release (both Ba and Li).
