Artificial microburst dielectrics produced in laser-sol interactions
Askar'yan G. A. , Raevskii I. M.
The possibility of producing artificial dielectrics for electromagnetic radiation through the formation of microbursts at particles in laser-bombarded sol clouds is studied. The changes in the dielectric function and the possible reflection coefficients for electromagnetic waves at slabs of such dielectrics are calculated. Calculations are also carried out for refraction and focusing. Some possible applications are pointed out.
