Experimentally an effective channeling and transfer of the sliding mode of the 35.3 GHz (λ ≈ 8.5 mm) microwave signal along 60 m distance has been demonstrated in the low-density (ne ∼ 1012 cm−3) 10 cm diameter hollow plasma waveguide created by the 100 ns UV pulse of GARPUN KrF laser in the laboratory air. The mechanism of the transfer is the total internal reflection of the signal on the optically less dense walls of the waveguide. The theory of this sliding mode propagation in large-diameter (D � λ) plasma waveguides is developed, which is in good accordance with our experimental results.
