The influence of a radial electron density inhomogeneity on plasma modes propagating in a cylindrical bounded plasma immersed in an axial static magnetic field, and the variations of the wave characteristics induced by a dielectric layer surrounding the plasma have been studied. The computations show that the electromagnetic‐field radial distribution can be very sensitive to the electron density gradient, with or without the presence of the dielectric.
