Paper Abstract

The properties of a plasma waveguide consisting of a cylindrical vacuum core surrounded by a plasma medium are studied. The frequency dependence of the guided modes in a plasma waveguide is analyzed, along with single mode propagation in the waveguide. It is found that the waveguide is less dependent on frequency than the dielectric waveguide, i.e., it is a wide-frequency-band transport system. The excitation of the plasma waveguide is discussed, and a survey is made of laser-created plasmas, the mechanism of photoionization, and the stability of the plasma.
