Chapter 5: Hydrodynamic Plasma Properties with the Nonlinear Force
Based on the preceding results of the nonlinear force, we now discuss the momentum transfer to the plasma (at perpendicular incidence for simplification). We shall see that plasma moving from vacuum into plasma increase their momentum. This can be seen from the reflection conditions at a discontinuous interface between plasma and a homogeneous plasma resulting in the value given by the well-known Fresnel formulas.
