NUMERICAL/EXPERIMENTAL DATA DESCRIPTION
========================================
These data are compatible with python plot, gnuplot, grace, etc..

___Figure 2
The parameter range for electron trapping solely due to the expanding bubble. The bubble expansion has been modelled
as R(t)=R_0(1+\epsilon * t), where \epsilon is the expansion rate, R_0 is the initial bubble radius,
and the bubble is spherically symmetric.
