Abstract : The interaction of electromagnetic waves with a uniformly, moving ionization region in immovable medium is considered. It is shown that the reflection and refraction coefficients may be expressed through the corresponding coefficients for the immovable plasma layer of the analogous profile. The relations obtained contain total energies and frequencies of the interacting waves at different velocities of the ionization wave. Unlike the moving inhomogeneous plasma, the total signal energy and the quantum number decrease in all cases.
