Magnetic reconnection in solar flares can efficiently generate non-thermal electron beams. The accelerated electrons can, in turn, cause radio waves through kinetic instabilities as they propagate through the ambient plasma. We aim at investigating the wave emission caused by fast electron beams (FEBs) with characteristic non-thermal electron velocity distribution functions (EVDFs) generated by kinetic magnetic reconnection: bump-on-tail EVDFs along the separatrices and in the diffusion region… Expand
