Effect of nonlocal transport on heat-wave propagation.

Abstract

We present the first direct measurements of spatially and temporally resolved temperature and density profiles produced by nonlocal transport in a laser plasma. Absolutely calibrated measurements have been performed by Rayleigh scattering and by resolving the ion-acoustic wave spectra across the plasma volume with Thomson scattering. We find that the electron temperature and density profiles disagree with flux-limited models, but are consistent with nonlocal transport modeling.
