Paper Abstract

Non-Fourier electrodynamics of plasmalike and waveguidelike media are advanced by means of new exact analytical solutions of Maxwell equations without traditional Fourier transformations. These solutions describe the non-sine fields in strongly dispersive media and are distinguished from usual traveling sine waves by unequal periods of oscillations of electric and magnetic components and enhanced spreading of magnetic components as compared with electric ones. Using orthogonal Hermitian pulses for description of non-sine waveforms incidenting on such a dispersive interface we consider the shape-dependent reflection of these waveforms and controlled shaping of ultrashort pulses.
