Abstract

Using femtosecond microscopy, we observe subpicosecond transport of thermal energy radially outward from a micrometer-sized spot of an aluminum target following P-polarized excitation at >1018Wcm2 with a 24fs pulse. The rapid expansion coincides with the onset of nonlocal energy transport dominated by radiation and hot electrons.
