Collisional effect on lower hybrid waves instability in a dusty plasma

  • L S Tura


The effect of particle collisions on lower hybrid modes in a dusty plasma is studied. The dispersion relation derived from fluid theory is numerically solved for plasma parameters relevant to determine the modification in wave propagation due to collisions. This study is relevant to the earth's lower atmosphere, in particular, the mesosphere, where charged dusts and excitation of low frequency waves have been observed
