ABSTRACT: The parametric decay of a Langmuir wave into a Langmuir wave and an ion acoustic wave is studied in a plasma slab. The coupled mode equations are solved using the perturbation technique which yields a dispersion relation for the parametric instability. The growth rate of the instability is found to increase with the width of the plasma slab and approaches the value for an infinite uniform plasma.
