Abstract

The influence of wake and magnetic field on the surface ion-cyclotron wave is kinetically investigated in a semi-bounded streaming dusty magnetoplasma in the presence of the ion wake-field. The analytic expressions of the frequency and the group velocity are derived by the plasma dielectric function with the spectral reflection condition. The result shows that the ion wake-field enhances the wave frequency and the group velocity of the surface ion-cyclotron wave in a semi-bounded dusty plasma. It is found that the frequency and the group velocity of the surface electrostatic-ion-cyclotron wave increase with an increase of the strength of the magnetic field. It is interesting to find out that the group velocity without the ion flow has the backward propagation mode in a semi-bounded dusty plasma. The variations due to the frequency and the group velocity of the surface ion-cyclotron wave are also discussed.
