Some features of the field induced phase transition accompanied by the vacuum creation of an electron-positron plasma (EPP) in strong time-dependent electric fields have been discussed in the work  in the domain of the tunneling mechanism (ω ≪ m, where ω is the characteristic frequency of the external field and m is the electron mass). In the present contribution the features of this process will be considered in the few photon domain where ω ~ m. We observe a narrowing of the transient domain of the quickly oscillations and, mainly, a considerable growth of the effectiveness of the EPP production. Under these circumstances, we see an increase of the effectiveness of the EPP creation in the particular case of a bifrequent excitation, where both mechanisms (tunneling and few photon) act simultaneously [2, 3].
