Parametric excitation of lower hybrid waves by electron plasma waves

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Parametric decay of an obliquely (to the magnetic field) propagating electron plasma wave to an obliquely propagating electron plasma sideband and a lower hybrid wave is studied. This decay process is then considered as a cascade channel for electron plasma waves to broaden their downshifted frequency spectra. The dependence of the threshold pump field on the number of cascade is determined.
