- Electron beam hollowing in a plasma is investigated using an analytical, rigid beam model and two different hybrid codes in an attempt to explain observations of hollow plasma formations on the back of plastic targets in experiments carried out on the Vulcan terawatt laser. The relevance of the results to electron transport in fast ignition inertial confinement fusion is considered using dimensionless scaling parameters. © 2006 IOP Publishing Ltd.
