Reflection and transmission of an ultrashort electromagnetic pulse incident normal to a flat plasma layer

Doklady Physics Aims and scope Submit manuscript


The process of reflection and transmission of ultrashort pulses incident normal to a flat plasma layer of finite thickness and on a step barrier is calculated within an exact mathematical approach for various parameters (barrier width and duration and carrier frequency of a corrected Gaussian pulse) of the problem.
