Experimental evidence of electric inhibition in fast electron penetration and of electric-field-limited fast electron transport in dense matter

Abstract:
Fast electron generation and propagation were studied in the interaction of a green laser with solids. The experiment, carried out with the LULI TW laser (350 fs, 15 J), used K α emission from buried fluorescent layers to measure electron transport. Results for conductors (Al) and insulators (plastic) are compared with simulations: in plastic, inhibition in the propagation of fast electrons is observed, due to electric fields which become the dominant factor in electron transport. ©2000 The American Physical Society.
