Theoretical analysis of the electromagnetic field distribution in the focal region of a long metallic parabolic reflector that has its surface covered with a magnetized plasma layer is derived. The incident wave is considered to be with a general oblique incidence for both parallel and perpendicular polarizations. The electromagnetic field intensity expressions along the focal region are obtained accurately using Maslov’s method. The effects of plasma thickness on the reflected and transmitted field distributions are investigated. The effects of other physical parameters such as the angle of incidence and the plasma and cyclotron frequencies on the transmitted field-intensity distribution along the focal region are also studied. The results obtained by Maslov’s method and Kirchhoff’s approximation are found to be in a good agreement.
