Abstract

The generation of higher harmonics of the magnetoplasmon frequency which has recently been reported in strongly coupled two-dimensional Yukawa systems is investigated in detail and, in addition, extended to two-dimensional Coulomb systems. We observe higher harmonics over a much larger frequency range than before and compare the theoretical prediction with the simulations. The influence of the coupling, structure, and thermal energy on the excitation of these modes is examined in detail. We also report on the effect of friction on the mode spectra to make predictions about the experimental observability of this new effect.
