Abstract

When the distribution of electron velocities parallel to the magnetic field has a tail with a bump, a linear triple wave resonance instability can cause the growth of electromagnetic waves at w-p. The bandwidth of the radiation depends on the ratio of the number of electrons in the tail to the total number of electrons; the smaller this ratio, the narrower the bandwidth. The instability occurs only when the mean tail velocity takes a specific value. The radiation thus gives an indication of tail structure.
