Frequency downshift in rapidly ionizing media

S. P. Kuo, A. Ren, G. Schmidt

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


It is known that an electromagnetic wave propagating in a rapidly ionizing medium undergoes a frequency upshift. Here experimental evidence and theory are presented for the simultaneous creation of a downshifted wave. There is excellent agreement between experimental results and computer simulation based on a simple theory.
