Abstract:This paper presents numerical results in the form of graphs of the power reflection coefficients for electromagnetic signals normally incident upon a conductive plane covered with a layer of plasma. The plasma's electron density varies only in the direction perpendicular to the plane. A non-uniform external magnetic field, which is oriented in a direction paralleled to the conductor's surface and has a gradient normal to this surface, is applied to the plasma. Parameters considered in the computation cover a relatively wide range and the functional dependence of the power reflection coefficients on these parameters are studied.
