A plasma has been defined as a quasi-neutral gas of charged particles showing collective behaviour. Plasmas can support waves depending on the local condi-tions, the presence of external electric and magnetic fields. A characteristic property of plasmas is their ability to transfer momentum and energy via col-lective motion. An example in this case, is the Langmuir waves where plasma electrons oscillate against a stationary ion background. In a superconductor, two plasma electrons arise one that is made up of normal electrons and the other that is made up of super-electrons. In this study, we consider a system of super-electrons forming a super-particle. The motion of the plasma su-per-particles around a magnetic vortex core has been studied in the YBCO123 and Bi2212 systems.
