When a plasma is created in a magnetic bottle by injection of fast particles, the velocity — space distribution of the trapped ions is highly anisotropic [1]. Longitudinal oscillations at the ionic cyclotron frequency and its harmonics can occur in these plasma anisotropies. The oscillations propagate almost perpendicular to the magnetic field lines, i.e., a cyclotron instability can develop [2, 3].
