Abstract

We describe the theory of a cyclotron maser instability which appears to be a likely source of auroral kilometric radiation and its generation in a laboratory experiment. We then outline plans for future development of the experiment to investigate a wider range of instabilities resulting from the existence of electron beams in a plasma. The basic theory theory underlying a few of these is then discussed.
