In their comments, Maraghechi and Chakhmachi [“Comment on ‘Stimulated Raman scattering of laser from periodically spaced nanoparticles’,” Phys. Plasmas 17, 084703 (2010)] overlooked the fact that the electromagnetic mode dispersion relation has two roots: the high frequency root I have plotted and the low frequency root. Maraghechi and Chakhmachi considered the case where pump and sideband waves lie on the high frequency branch of electromagnetic wave dispersion relation. Their result seems to be fine, but the magnitude of growth rate is significantly lower than the one we obtained when pump and decay waves fall on two different branches.

    Parashar [Phys. Plasmas 16, 093106 (2009)] studied the Raman backscattering of electromagnetic waves from nanoparticle lattice. We have demonstrated that the uncoupled dispersion curves have incorrect cutoff frequencies and the electromagnetic dispersion curves do not have correct asymptotic...

    We consider large-amplitude circularly polarized (LACP) waves propagating in a magnetized plasma. It is well-known that the dispersion relation for such waves coincides with the dispersion relation given by the linear theory. We develop the model of LACP wave containing a finite population of...

    A strong azimuthal magnetic field localizes the lower hybrid waves radially in laser produced plasmas. The laser pump parametrically excites a lower hybrid wave and a backscattered electromagnetic sideband wave. The density perturbation due to the lower hybrid wave couples with the oscillatory...

Normal operation makes use of Rayleigh scattering in nitrogen or argon to derive the density profile. While the Rayleigh scattering ne(R)...

    Stimulated Brillouin scattering of two collinear lasers in a plasma is investigated. Lasers exert a longitudinal ponderomotive force on electrons, imparting them oscillatory axial velocity at the beat frequency. This velocity acts as a driver for parametric excitation of an ion acoustic wave...
