Wave electric field Ex/E0 as a function of the normalized distance x/ρi for the normalized wavenumbers kyρi = 0.01, kzρi = 0.01 (left) and kyρi = 0.05, kzρi = 0.05 (right), where the lines correspond to the angles α = 20°, 50°, 80°, 85°, and 90°, respectively. The plasma parameters κρi = 0.005, Ti/Te = 1, and kzvA/ω = 0.3 have been used.
