The quantum effects on the propagation circularly polarized waves have been investigated in electron magnetized quantum plasmas. We obtain the dispersion equations of the propagation of circularly polarized laser beam through cold plasma. The results show that the laser can be propagated due to the quantum effects which enhance the propagation phase velocity. For this purpose, the quantum hydrodynamic (QHD) equations with magnetic field and Maxwell’s equations system is used to derive these dispersion relations. The perturbed electron density and current due to the interaction of laser beam with quantum plasma have been investigated. It is shown that the external magnetic field which is parallel to the propagation waves has strong effect on the dispersion relation for the laser propagation in quantum model than the classical regime.
It is shown that high-frequency electrostatic surface waves (SW) could be propagated at right angles to an external magnetic field on the boundary between metal and gaseous plasma due to a finite pressure electron gas in quantum plasma by using the quantum hydrodynamic QHD equations. The dispersion relation for those surface waves in uniform electron plasma is derived under strong external magnetic field. We have shown that the electrostatic surface waves exist also in the frequency for the ranges where electromagnetic SW is impossible. The surface plasma modes are numerically evaluated for the specific case of gold metallic plasma at room temperature. It has been found that dispersion relation of surface modes depends significantly on these quantum effects (Bohm potential and statistical) and should be into account in the case of magnetized or unmagnetized plasma.
