Dynamics of interference interaction of counter-propagating electromagnetic pulses on a magneto-dielectric slab is studied in time domain. Energy redistribution in the counter-propagating pulses with arbitrary waveforms is considered. The maximal energy redistribution in the diffracted field takes place under certain conditions. The conditions are found and their physical explanation is supplied. The problem of transient electromagnetic wave diffraction on homogeneous magneto-dielectric slab is solved analytically by means of Laplace transform. The analytical solution is in agreement with numerical simulation based on finite difference time domain approach.
