Abstract

It was shown in this paper that the process of the Raman scattering of a pump electromagnetic wave on Langmuir oscillations produced by the signal wave can be efficient as a mechanism of information transfer to the vehicle during the reentry blackout of radio communications. An idealized model was utilized based on a simple slab geometry of the plasma sheath and the complexity of various physical chemical processes inside the sheath were all disregarded. An analysis taking account for a real plasma sheath geometry and possible extra ionization because of the pump electromagnetic field is in progress, with the aid of computer simulations.
