Abstract

Refraction is included in the stability analysis of the corona ablated from a laser target, assuming conduction restricted to a thin layer and absorption at the critical density inside it. A thermal self-focusing instability, with growth rate ~ (ion-electron collision frequency) X (electron-to-ion mass ratio), is found.
