This paper presents an investigation of the time-dependent setting-up of nonlinearity in a collisionless plasma in the presence of a short-duration laser pulse. Using the paraxial-ray approximation, transient self-focusing of the incident laser pulse and Brillouin back-scattering have also been studied, including pump depletion. The effect of this transient nature on reflectivity has been discussed.
