Abstract Observation of the front and rear plasma expansions from a laser- irradiated thin film has been used to study the thermal conduction of polystyrene targets. The existence of reduced conductivity has been inferred above a threshold of 10$sup 14$ W/cm$sup 2$. The percentage of laser radiation transmitted through the thin film decreased by an order of magnitude as the laser flux increased from 10$sup 13$ to 10$sup 14$ W/cm$sup 2$. (AIP)
