Paper Abstract

Using a fast-gated (120 psec-5 nsec) microchannel-plate optical camera (Gated Optical Imager), framing photographs have been taken of the rapidly streaming, laser plasma (~5 x 107 cm/sec) passing through a vacuum or a background gas, with and without a magnetic field. Observations of Large-Larmor-Radius Interchange Instabilities are presented.
