Non-local electron transport plays a significant role to determine the density scale-length that is critical for Rayleigh-Taylor instability. We have measured the density profile of the target irradiated either with 0.53 ${\rm\mu}$m or 0.35 ${\rm\mu}$m laser. The diagnostic instrument is a Fresnel phase zone plate with spatial resoluion better than 2 ${\rm\mu}$m. We got the backlit images of the target irradiated by the laser.
