Linear conversion in a magnetized plasma with density gradient parallel to the magnetic field

  • Published online: 01 March 2009

The problem of linear conversion of an ordinary polarized electromagnetic wave in a magnetized plasma with density gradient parallel to the magnetic field is considered. An expression for the conversion coefficient as a function of angle of incidence, WKB parameter and magnetic field is obtained. The magnetic field leads to a narrowing of the range of angles of incidence leading to linear conversion, compared with the unmagnetized case.
