AbstractThe impact of the nonstationarity of the heliospheric termination shock in the presence of pickup ions (PUIs) on the energy partition between different plasma components is analyzed self-consistently by using a one-dimensional particle-in-cell simulation code. Solar wind ions (SWIs) and PUIs are introduced as Maxwellian and shell distributions, respectively. For a fixed time, (a) with a percentage of 25% PUIs, a large part of the downstream thermal pressure is carried by reflected PUIs, in agreement with previous hybrid simulations; (b) the total downstream distribution includes three main components: (i) a low-energy component dominated by directly transmitted (DT) SWIs, (ii) a high-energy component dominated by reflected PUIs, and (iii) an intermediate-energy component dominated by reflected SWIs and DT PUIs. Moreover, results show that the front nonstationarity (self-reformation) persists even in presence of 25% PUIs, and has some impacts on both SWIs and PUIs: (a) the rate of reflected ions suffers some time fluctuations for both SWIs and PUIs; (b) the relative percentage of downstream thermal pressure transfered to PUIs and SWIs also suffers some time fluctuations, but depends on the relative distance from the front; (c) the three components within the total downstream heliosheath distribution persist in time, but the contribution of the ion subpopulations to the low-and intermediate-energy components are redistributed by the front nonstationarity. Our results allow clarifying the respective roles of SWIs and PUIs as a viable production source of energetic neutral atoms and are compared with previous results.
