Abstract:

Experimental observations and theories of pulse stimulated radiation phenomena in plasmas are reviewed. The motions of an ensemble of non-interacting electrons in a magnetic field is considered and it is shown that cyclotron echoes in plasmas can arise out of various types of nonlinearities a energy dependent electron cyclotron frequency, b energy dependent electron collision frequency, c energy dependent driving force. The similarities and differences with spin and photon echoes is discussed, and several new related phenomena are also described. Author
