Paper Abstract

The modulational instability of intense electromagnetic waves has been investigated by incorporating the ponderomotive force as well as inverse-bremsstrahlung heating. It is found that a reduced thermal conductivity can significantly enhance (reduce) the growth rate (threshold) of the modulational instabilities.
