Our research focuses on understanding externally applied and self-generated magnetic field effects on heat, particle, and charge transport, as well as laser plasma instabilities in regimes relevant to high-energy x-ray source development. Results will provide data for model validation in a regime where little to no data exist, impacting a range of national defense and energy missions.
