Title: Analytical study of acoustically perturbed Brillouin active magnetized semiconductor plasma

Abstract

An analytical study of acoustically perturbed Brillouin active magnetized semiconductor plasma has been reported. In the present analytical investigation, the lattice displacement, acousto-optical polarization, susceptibility, acousto-optical gain constant arising due to the induced nonlinear current density and acousto-optical process are deduced in an acoustically perturbed Brillouin active magnetized semiconductor plasma using the hydrodynamical model of plasma and coupled mode scheme. The influence of wave number and magnetic field has been explored. The analysis has been applied to centrosymmetric crystal. Numerical estimates are made for n-type InSb crystal duly irradiated by a frequency doubled 10.6 µm CO{sub 2} laser. It is found that lattice displacement, susceptibility and acousto-optical gain increase linearly with incident wave number and applied dc magnetic field, while decrease with scattering angle. The gain also increases with electric amplitude of incident laser beam. Results are found to be well in agreement with available literature.

  • The effects of magnetic field on the stimulated Brillouin and Raman scattering processes are studied. The formalism applies to plasmas produced by CO/sub 2/ lasers and to electron cyclotron heating of toroidal systems by an extraordinary electromagnetic wave. In the case of laser fusion the plasma is magnetized due to the self-generated dc magnetic field, while in toroidal plasmas it is due to the external magnetic field. The magnetic field greatly reduces the threshold for Brillouin backscattering by the lower hybrid wave. The Raman scattering by the upper hybrid wave has substantial growth rate even for large klambda/sub D/ becausemore » of the reduction of linear Landau damping due to the magnetic field.« less
  • In this paper we have made a theoretical investigation of the stimulated Brillouin and Raman backscattering of laser radiation at the upper hybrid frequency in a laser-produced plasma, taking into account the effects of a spatially uniform self-generated magnetic field of the order of a few megagauss. The Vlasov equation has been employed to obtain the nonlinear electron density perturbation due to the low-frequency short-wavelength electrostatic mode and the current density due to the high-frequency, unmagnetized, scattered laser radiation in the plasma. This kinetic treatment is valid for plasmas produced by both CO/sub 2/ and Nd-glass lasers and short-wavelength perturbations.more » It is noticed that the growth rates for both Brillouin and Raman backscattering increase with the self-generated magnetic field.« less
  • High power electromagnetic waves transmitted from the HAARP facility in Alaska can excite low-frequency electrostatic waves by magnetized stimulated Brillouin scatter. Either an ion-acoustic wave with a frequency less than the ion cyclotron frequency (f{sub CI}) or an electrostatic ion cyclotron (EIC) wave just above f{sub CI} can be produced. The coupled equations describing the magnetized stimulated Brillouin scatter instability show that the production of both ion-acoustic and EIC waves is strongly influenced by the wave propagation relative to the background magnetic field. Experimental observations of stimulated electromagnetic emissions using the HAARP transmitter have confirmed that only ion-acoustic waves aremore » excited for propagation along the magnetic zenith and that EIC waves can only be detected with oblique propagation angles. The ion composition can be obtained from the measured EIC frequency.« less
  • The stimulated Brillouin scattering (SBS) of nonresonant beat mode in the presence of static magnetic field is investigated in a plasma. Two counter-propagating lasers of frequencies (ω{sub 1} and ω{sub 2}) and wave vectors (k{sub 1} and k{sub 2}) drive a nonresonant space charge beat mode at the phase matching condition of frequency ω{sub 0}≈ω{sub 1}∼ω{sub 2} and wave number k{sup →}{sub 0}≈k{sup →}{sub 1}+k{sup →}{sub 2}. The driver wave parametrically excites a pair of ion acoustic wave (ω,k{sup →}) and a sideband electromagnetic wave (ω{sub 3},k{sup →}{sub 3}). The beat wave couples with the sideband electromagnetic wave to exertmore » a nonlinear ponderomotive force at the frequency of ion acoustic wave. Density perturbations due to ion acoustic wave and ponderomotive force couple with the oscillatory motion of plasma electron due to velocity of beat wave to give rise to a nonlinear current (by feedback mechanism) responsible for the growth of sideband wave at resonance. The growth rate of SBS was reduced (from ∼10{sup 12}s{sup −1} to 10{sup 10}s{sup −1}) by applying a transverse static magnetic field ∼90 T. The present study can be useful for the excitation of fast plasma waves (for the purpose of electron acceleration) by two counter-propagating laser beams.« less
