Amplitude modulation of whistlers by modified ion-cyclotron perturbations in plasmas
2006 (English)In: Journal of Plasma Physics, ISSN 0022-3778, E-ISSN 1469-7807, Vol. 72, no 2, 149-152 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
The nonlinear interaction between a large-amplitude whistler pump and the modified ion-cyclotron perturbations is studied. A nonlinear dispersion relation for the modulation/filamentation interaction is derived and solved numerically to investigate the instability properties. We discuss the relevance of the present study with regard to recent laboratory experiments where the modulation/filamentation of a whistler pump by the modified ion-cyclotron waves has been observed.
