Figure 16

Magnitude of the electric field, in volts/meter, within the inhomogeneous plasma cylinder obtained by the FDTD simulation for different collision frequencies ν. Incident wave frequency is set to fin = 10 GHz, and central electron density is set to n0 = 5 × 1017 m−3.
(a) ν = 500 × 106 Hz
(b) ν = 500 × 107 Hz
(c) ν = 500 × 108 Hz
