Abstract

Laboratory experiments at MIT using the Versatile Toroidal Facility (VTF) have produced "cascading" and "frequency-upshifted" spectra of HF wave-enhanced Langmuir waves resembling the spectra observed in Arecibo experiments. The VTF experiments are well-explained using the source mechanism proposed by Kuo and Lee [1992] to interpret observed Langmuir wave spectra at Arecibo, Puerto Rico. This mechanism is referred to as a nonlinear scattering of parametric decay instability (PDI)-excited Langmuir waves by "pre-existing" lower hybrid waves to preferentially produce anti-Stokes (i.e., frequency-upshifted) Langmuir waves. Recent radar spectral observations of anti-Stokes Langmuir waves at Arecibo with improved range and time resolution [Sulzer and Fejer, 1994] can be reasonably understood in terms of this mechanism.
