Abstract:

The paper contains a single-particle model that is sufficient to explain observed radiation peaks from weakly ionized laboratory plasma immersed in a magnetic field subsequent to one, two or three short driving RF pulses at the gyro frequency. It is shown that, depending upon the regime of operation, these echoes can result from any combination of arbitrary speed dependences in the gyro frequency, collision frequency, or diffusion of the electrons between and after the pulses.
