A theoretical study is made on the generation mechanism of Langmuir mode wave in the presence of kinetic Alfvén wave turbulence in a magnetized plasma on the basis of plasma-maser interaction. It is shown that a test high frequency Langmuir mode wave is unstable in the presence of low frequency kinetic Alfvén wave turbulence. The growth of the Langmuir wave occurs due to direct and polarization coupling terms. Because of the universal existence of the kinetic Alfvén waves in large scale plasmas, the results have potential importance in space and astrophysical radiation processes.

We study the evolution of the resonant waves considering its interaction with the nonresonant waves and the plasma particles due to plasma-maser effect. The nonlinear dielectric function of the resonant wave is calculated and is found to consist of two parts: the direct and the polarization coupling terms. On the other hand, the nonlinear dielectric function of the nonresonant wave consists only of the direct coupling term. The significance of our results is discussed.
