Plasmon energy storage

  1. May 19, 2009 #1
    As I know main limitation of
    superconducting energy storage is Lorentz
    forces which are created by magnetic field
    and ultimately destroy a superconducting ring.
    But there exist so called plasmon waves or plasma
    waves which could spread in metals and plasma.
    If I no make mistake they don't create magnetic
    field.I wander if it's possible to create conditions
    when those plasmon waves will be dumpless
    and dissipationless (in superconductors?) and
    what will be limitation to energy density of this
    waves. Also if it's possible to use plasmons for
    energy storage?
