Nonlinear tunneling of electromagnetic wave through a plasma layer

Background and Objectives: The propagation of a strong plane electromagnetic wave from a vacuum through a limited plasma layer is considered, taking into account non-linearity under tunneling and transparency conditions. The temperature dependence is not taken into account. The non-linearity is taken into account phenomenologically as the dependence of the plasma frequency and collision frequency on the field averaged over the period squared.
