Talk:Waves in plasmas

We need a discussion of cut-off, resonance, and evanescence. And we need a discussion of waves at oblique incidence, including the Clemmow-Mullaly-Allis (CMA) diagram. Finally, check there are no terms unexplained or quantities undefined. Art Carlson 11:32, 2005 May 18 (UTC)

Isn't the "pipe trick" ((Category:Waves in plasmas|*)) supposed to put this article at the head of the line in the list of articles in the category? Art Carlson 19:57, 2005 May 22 (UTC)


The equation \omega^2 = \omega_i^2 = \Omega_c\omega_c for the lower-hybrid frequency does not make any sense at all: \omega_i depends on the ion density but not the magnetic field, whereas \Omega_c\omega_c depends on the magnetic field but not the ion density! A little digging into some text books says that it should be \frac{1}{\omega^2} = \frac{1}{\omega_i^2} + \frac{1}{\Omega_c\omega_c}. Usually one is very much smaller than the other and is ignored, but I feel that the general equation should be put here (and on the lower-hybrid page). I will edit shortly unless someone objects.129.78.64.103 (talk) 05:40, 10 November 2009 (UTC)

The text confirms that lower hybrid oscillation involves both electrons and ions, but the table obscures this. Shannock9 (talk) 13:12, 14 May 2011 (UTC)

how do i add this waves of plasma topic to another site edit add on waves of plasma to it — Preceding unsigned comment added by Shawn laser lightning plasma (talkcontribs) 08:12, 1 November 2011 (UTC)
