Abstract:

The report studies the energization of electrons in a magnetoplasma by wave-particle interaction. Depending upon the refractive index of the plasma medium and the field parameters the wave particle interaction exhibits either synchronous or oscillatory behavior. Adopting dipole model of geomagnetic field and various plasma and field parameters the energization of electrons in the ionosphere and magnetosphere has been studied. Detailed computation of energy gain and time of energy oscillation has been carried out. An effort has been made to explain some of the ionospheric and magnetospheric phenomena in the light of these calculations. The role of effective electron collision frequency on the wave particle phenomena has been considered. The problem is reformulated to include the effect of finite collisions. Computation is carried out to display the effect of collisions. Author
