The production of intense focused ion beams has led to the consideration of using z-discharge plasma channels to transport them several meters to inertial fusion targets. Analysis has shown that current bunching will occur in the channel during transport. In this report ion beam propagation in a filamented channel is investigated in order to determine the effects on radial beam containment in channels and on the radial beam density profile. Author
