Abstract

The lower-hybrid parametric resonant decay instability (decay into electrostatic lower-hybrid waves and backward ioncyclotron waves) driven by a modulated electron beam is investigated experimentally. Plasma heating and the possibility of wave-enhanced particle loss associated with this instability are discussed.
