Title: Test wave harmonics generation in an inhomogeneous plasma with an electron beam and a return current

Abstract

Generation of second and third harmonics of a pump wave, taking place during electron beam propagation in a plasma with a return current, is investigated. Polarization properties and generation efficiency are specifically addressed. Analytical dependencies of the investigated physical values are reported for both the cases when the generation mechanism is provided by collisions of beam electrons with plasma ions, and when it is provided by collisions of bulk electrons creating the return current.
