Abstract : A plasma excited by two short pulses at the electron gyrofrequency which have a time separation, Torr, is considered in the single particle approach. It is shown that the relativistic mass effect can lead to a series of radiation maxima after the second pulse. The shape of the radiation maxima is given by the square of the Fourier transform of the distribution of the inhomogeneities or the initial energies, respectively. The two effects have the tendency to cancel each other. (Author)
