STUDY OF THE ELECTRON CYCLOTRON MASER INSTABILITY
The fully relativistic dispersion relation for the extraordinary mode around the electron cyclotron frequency is investigated, both analytically and numerically, for propagation perpendicular to the magnetic field and a (relativistic) loss cone distribution. Both the wave dispersion and the (spatial) absorption, which can be positive or negative, as well as the (w-p/w-c)-range for the absolute maser instability are evaluated and discussed.
