Figure 15

Magnitude of the electric field, in volts/meter, within the inhomogeneous plasma cylinder obtained by the FDTD simulation for different central electron densities n0. Incident wave frequency is set to fin = 10 GHz, and electron collision frequency is set to ν = 500 × 106 Hz.
(a) n0 = 1 × 1017 m−3
(b) n0 = 5 × 1017 m−3
(c) n0 = 1 × 1018 m−3
(d) n0 = 1.5 × 1018 m−3
(e) n0 = 2 × 1018 m−3
(f) n0 = 5 × 1018 m−3
