The possibility of observing acoustic-wave amplification made possible through the heating of neutral particles by electrons in a weakly ionized gas has received some recent attention. -4 The idea is that an existing sound wave, by inducing a space-.time variation in the electron density, would create an acoustic source, thereby generating a wave that… (More)
