Abstract:

The frequency dependence of cross modulation Luxemburg-Gorkovskiy effect is iscussed. It is shown that in a homogeneous magnetoactive plasma, cross modulation increases as the frequency of the perturbing wave approaches values at which the absorption index of this wave rises abruptly. These values, generally speaking, do not coincide with the gyrofrequency. The conclusion concerning the resonance of cross modulation at the gyrofrequency in a homogeneous plasma, previously drawn in the theory of the Luxemburg-Gorkovskiy effect, was due to not taking into account the nature of the polarization of the perturbing wave in the presence of a magnetic field.
