Paper Abstract

It is shown, that the essential laser pulse energy depletion due to ionization losses occurs at rather large distances only. The process of depletion is accompanied by a significant steepening of the temporal pulse form corresponding to the formation of a sharp ionization front of a medium density. The latter, in turn, becomes sharper, suffering an inverse influence of the steeping of a laser pulse temporal structure. The analysis of spatial and temporal evolution of magnitude of the laser pulse from steepening is carried out.
