Kinetic theory of stimulated Raman sidescattering from magnetized plasmas

  • Author(s) / Creator(s)
  • A theory of stimulated Raman sidescattering in magnetized plasmas is presented based on a solution of the Vlasov–Maxwell equations. The incident laser light, in the form of extraordinary mode radiation, decays into light waves which propagate along the uniform magnetic field as right or left circularly polarized waves. The scattered plasma mode is an obliquely propagating electron‐Bernstein wave. The possible relevance of the theory to experiments in which structure is observed in radiation at one‐half of the laser frequency is discussed.
