Lateral transport of hot electrons on a spherical target irradiated with two beams of CO[sub 2] laser {4.8 X 10TM W/cm2} iS studied by spatially resolved Kcr x-ray measurements. The hot-electron energy and spatial distribution in the target are found to depend on the method of irradiation: tight and overlapped focusing conditions.
