    • Abstract

       

      Using an hydrodynamical model, analytical investigation of the stimulated Brillouin scattering of an electromagnetic wave by an acoustic-like mode has been done in a multi-ion species plasma. The acoustic-like mode is a new mode which propagates in a multi-ion plasma only. The non-linear dispersion relation and the growth rate of the excited modes are derived. The non-linearity arises through the motion of ions which is introduced through ponderomotive force. It is found that the growth rate can be controlled by several parameters like charge number, mass, density and temperature of the ions.
