Abstract:

The generation of mixed-frequency fields by interaction of a longitudinal space-charge wave, carried by an electron stream through a plasma, and an electromagnetic wave - or a gyro-wave is studied. The direction of propagation of the interacting waves, of different frequencies, is assumed to coincide with that of a static magnetic field. It is demonstrated that the generated difference-frequency field may propagate as an electron gyro-wave or possibly as an ion gyro-wave or even hydromagnetic wave, if the difference-frequency is sufficiently small and the effect of collisions negligible. The investigation is limited to the case of an infinitely extended homogeneous medium. Author
