Generation of O-Mode in the Presence of Ion-Cyclotron Drift Wave Turbulence in a Nonuniform Plasma
This study aims to investigate the effect of ion-cyclotron drift wave turbulence on the generation of ordinary mode (O-mode) in the presence of density and temperature gradients. For this, a Vlasov plasma is considered where a resonant, and non-resonant modes are considered to be present in the system. Here, the non-resonant mode is a perturbation caused by O-mode in a quasi-steady state of plasma, which is characterised by the presence of low frequency ion-cyclotron resonant mode waves. The interaction between these waves is studied by the Vlasov-Maxwell set of equations and a modified Maxwellian-type distribution function for particles that includes the external force field and associated density and temperature gradient parameters . The study analyses the growth rate of electromagnetic O-mode at the expense of ion-cyclotron drift wave energy and the associated impact of the density and temperature gradient. This model uses the linear response theory on weakly turbulent plasma, evaluates the responses due to turbulent and perturbed fields, and obtains the nonlinear dispersion relation for O-mode.
