On the Electron Distribution Effect of an Expanding Laser Ablated Plasma
Based on the Gurevich distribution function, the effect of trapped electrons by the electrostatic potential rising during plasma expansion is investigated. The self similar approach is used to find the expanding profiles of density and velocity. The present work may be used to understand the salient features of the expansion of plasma produced by laser ablation.
