Abstract
The linear problem of p-polarized laser radiation absorption in sharp-edged plasmas under the normal skin-effect regime was considered. Magnetic component equation has been solved analytically by the use of perturbation techniques in the limit when the density scale length is much less than the laser wavelength. Asymptotic expressions for an absorption efficiency have been obtained for a linear plasma density profile.
