The transition from opacity to transparency of overdense plasma layers for the propagation of high-intensity laser pulses of circular polarization is investigated theoretically and by simulation. We discuss in detail the regions where stationary solutions exist and therefore the plasma layer is opaque. We find that the opacity depends not only on the… (More)
