Reflection and refraction of an obliquely incident electromagnetic wave interacting with a moving, magnetized plasma slab
Abstract
The problem of wave reflection and refraction at a moving magnetized plasma slab has been treated for arbitrary angles of incidence. The external magnetic field has been taken normal to both the plane of incidence and the direction of motion of the slab. Expressions are obtained for the phase shifts and the power reflection and transmission coefficients for both an incident Ewave and an incident Hwave. It is found that as against the case of a moving magnetized or unmagnetized plasma halfspace, there is a finite transmission through the plasma slab at a cutoff point. Further, for a moving plasma slab some unique Brewster's angles are shown to exist. For an isotropic plasma slab, in particular, the Brewster's angles are independent of the velocity of the slab medium and exist only for plasma frequencies less than the signal frequency.
