Abstract

We report experimental observation of resonance cones in the angular distribution of the radio-frequency electric field of a short antenna in a plasma in a static magnetic field. The cone angle is observed to vary with incident frequency, cyclotron frequency, and plasma frequency in agreement with simple plasma dielectric theory. We discuss the relationship of these cones to the limiting phase- and group-velocity cones which appear in the theory of plane wave propagation.
