The systematic dependence of the magnitude of the self-generated magnetic fields of a laser-produced plasma on nitrogen background pressure has been investigated. At expansion distances of a few millimeters or more, the strongest fields were found to reside at the front of the streaming laser plasma. Magnetic fields were created in the laser plasma long after laser shut off by allowing the streaming plasma to impinge upon a glass plate
