Abstract
Nonlinear effects associated with density modulation caused by wave-in duced ionization in magnetized plasmas were studied. The ionizing surf ace waves propagate at the interface between the plasma and a metallic surface. It is shown that the ionization nonlinearity can be importan t for typical experimental conditions.
