The nonlinear interaction between the electron‐positron pairs produced by an electromagnetic wave in a plasma is investigated for a circularly polarized wave using the relativistic Vlasov equation with a source term based on the Schwinger formula for the pair creation rate. The damping of the wave, the nonlinear up‐shift of its frequency due to the plasma density increase and the effect of the damping on the wave polarization are investigated.
