Abstract

The enhancement of low frequency oscillations by lower hybrid waves at electric fields lower than the thresholds of other parametric decay processes is presented. The frequencies and wavelengths of these oscillations agree with the collisional drift wave dispersion relation. The enhancement is localized deep inside the plasma density gradient. The excited drift waves change the density profile and the lower hybrid wave trajectory.
