Stimulated scattering of electromagnetic waves in dusty plasmas

  • 105 Accesses

  • 98 Citations


The nonlinear coupling between a large amplitude electromagnetic wave and the slow background motion in a dusty plasma is considered. Stimulated scattering instabilities are investigated. The relevance of our investigation to cometary and astrophysical plasmas is pointed out.
