Abstract

Experimental measurements of electron transport and isochoric heating in 100 J, 1 ps laser irradiation of solid Al targets are presented. Modeling with a hybrid PIC code is compared with the data and good agreement is obtained using a heuristic model for the electron injection. The relevance for fast ignition is discussed.
