Transient wave propagation in gyrotropic media

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingBook chapterResearch


In this paper transient electromagnetic wave propagation in an inhomogeneous,
cold plasma is considered. It is assumed that a constant magnetic
induction is present and that the plasma is spatially inhomogeneous in the
direction of the magnetic induction. Losses in the plasma are modeled with a
collision frequency ν. The direct problem, which is to calculate the reflected
and transmitted responses of the plasma, is considered in this paper. Special
attention is paid to the precursor effects in the plasma and several examples
of precursor effects in an inhomogeneous plasma are showed.
