Abstract

Plasma, as a non-linear medium supporting a rich and diverse range of electromagnetic and electrostatic oscillations, can enable a range of multi-wave interactions when excited by multiple injected propagating electromagnetic waves. Electromagnetic wave injection plays a dominant role in the introduction of energy in laser plasma interactions and in the heating of magnetically confined fusion reactors. In magnetically confined plasma, the EM waves tend to fall in the RF to microwave range, whilst in laser plasma interactions the signals are typically near the optical part of the spectrum.
