Abstract Hot-electron fractions measured in Nd-laser-plasma interactions at 10/sup 14/ W/cm/sup 2/ increase from <0.02% to 0.3% as plasma scale length at quarter-critical density (n/sub c//4) is systematically increased from 140 to 320 ..mu..m. Correlated x-ray and 3..omega../2 emissions indicate that the hot electrons are produced by an n/sub c//4 instability.
