Abstract

Using a two-dimensional electromagnetic and relativistic particle code, we show that high-frequency Langmuir waves can be generated by the plasma maser mechanism from low-frequency Alfven waves excited by a temperature anisotropy. It is confirmed by the simulation that the plasma maser mechanism does not require an electron (or positron) beam component for the growth of high-frequency Langmuir waves.
