Abstract: Electromagnetic ion-cyclotron (EMIC) waves with multi-component plasma have been studied by single particle approach with general loss-cone distribution function at different plasma densities. The dispersion relation and growth rate of the electromagnetic ion-cyclotron waves with multi-component plasma have been investigated. The effect of the steepness of the general distribution function in a low (ratio of plasma pressure to magnetic pressure) homogeneous plasma with different densities has been studied with multi-ions plasma. The wave is assumed to propagate parallel to the static magnetic field. The whole plasma is considered to consist of resonant and non-resonant particles. It is assumed that resonant particles participate in energy exchange with the wave, whereas non-resonant particles participate in the oscillatory motion of the wave. The effect of general loss-cone distribution function with varying plasma density is to enhance the wave growth of EMIC waves with multi-ions plasma (H+, He+ and O+). The loss-cone distribution acts as the source of free energy. The results are interpreted for the space plasma parameters appropriate to the auroral acceleration region of the earth’s magneto-plasma.
