We derived simple sets of equations to describe the microwave response of the magnetized hydrogen plasma slab embedded inside carbon nanotubes, which were grown by iron-catalyzed high-pressure disproportionation. These equations, which are useful when interference effects due to multiple reflections between plasma film interfaces are small, were used to analyze the reflection, absorption, and transmission coefficients of the magnetized hydrogen plasma slab. A discussion on the effects of the continuously changing external magnetic field and hydrogen plasma parameters on the reflected power, absorbed power, and transmitted power in the system is presented.
