Abstract [en]

We derive a linear dispersion relation for plane polarized electromagnetic waves in an unmagnetized collisional plasma containing ion-temperature anisotropy. It is found that the free energy stored in the latter can be coupled to a purely growing electromagnetic mode via electron-neutral collisions. Expressions for the growth rate and the corresponding threshold of our new instability are presented.
