Abstract: Laser light can propagate through an overdense magnetized plasma a’s an extraordinary mode. The required stationary magnetic field may be supplied by ultrafast ionization of the medium [Phys. Rev. Lett. 61, 337 (1988)]. The implications of this process on the interpretation of recent unexpected results [Phys. Rev. Lett: 79, 3194 (1997)] in terms of extraordinary mode propagation, is briefly discussed. This physical mechanism opens new and exciting perspectives in high-intensity femtosecond :interaction studies and related applications.
