Parametric excitation of coupled plasma waves

S. P. Kuo, B. R. Cheo

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A general approach to analyze the parametric decay processes of plasma waves is presented. The approach is based on the modal Hamiltonians of the decay waves and is valid for all wave types. In the limiting cases of B0 = 0 and of longitudinal waves, results of previous investigations are recovered. Comparisons with experiments are favorable.
