A new type of nonlinear coupling among multi-time scale of fluctuations is observed on the linear plasma device, PANTA. The low frequency drift waves (DWs), a few kHz and a high frequency fluctuation (the HF fluctuation) (∼ 30 kHz) are simultaneously observed. These fluctuations nonlinearly couple with each other confirmed by bi-coherence analysis. The characteristics of HF fluctuation are also discussed.
