New method of high speed temporal modulation of infra-red. wave beams, reflected from thin films of semiconductor's plasma with free carriers, is proposed. The physical foundations of such method, based on non-linear properties of free carriers plasma in these films, show the possibilities of elaboration of high-speed tunable modulators and polarizers. The reflection of continuous wave beam from the film with tunable reflection coefficient leads to pulses shaping, the pulse duration being as small as 1 nsec. The electric power, necessary for tuning of such modulator, is as small as (formula in PDF)
