Non-linear Alfv en wave interaction leading to resonant excitation of an acoustic mode in the laboratory

Abstract

The nonlinear three-wave interaction process at the heart of the parametric decay process is studied by launching counter-propagating Alfv en waves from antennas placed at either end of the Large Plasma Device [W. Gekelman et al., Rev. Sci. Instrum. 62, 2875 (1991)]. A resonance in the beat wave response produced by the two launched Alfv en waves is… (More)
