Fast electron injection and transport in solid foils irradiated by sub-picosecond-duration laser pulses with peak intensity equal to is investigated experimentally and via 3D simulations. The simulations are performed using a hybrid-particle-in-cell (PIC) code for a range of fast electron beam injection conditions, with and without inclusion of self-generated resistive magnetic fields. The resulting fast electron beam transport properties are used in rear-surface plasma expansion calculations to compare with measurements of proton acceleration, as a function of target thickness. An injection half-angle of is inferred, which is significantly larger than that derived from previous experiments under similar conditions.
