The dependence of the self-generated magnetic fields associated with a laser-produced plasma on position, time, and background pressure has been investigated. The presence of the ambient background is found to influence the generation of the fields during the laser irradiation of the plasma. This influence continues long after laser shut-off and causes the fields to reverse their direction. Author
