Analysis and experimental study of parallel flow velocity shear electrostatic ion cyclotron (EIC) instability has been done in plasma containing massive positive ions and electron by using the method of characteristics solution and kinetic theory in the presence of inhomogeneous direct current (DC) electric field perpendicular to ambient magnetic field. The effect of many parameters on growth rate and real frequency has been discussed by using the experimental data. Applications to possible laboratory plasmas and industries are also discussed.
Key words: Velocity shear instability with inhomogeneous D.C electric field.
