AB  - Laser-driven plasma wakefield acceleration (LWFA) is considered as a potential technology for future colliders and light sources. To make the best use of a laser’s power, the laser is expected to maintain a stable propagation. A transverse instability is observed in our previous simulations when a long, intense CO₂ laser propagates inside a plasma*. This unstable motion is accompanied by strong transverse diffraction of the laser power and results in the disruption of the ion channel typically used for radiation generation**. We investigated the hosing-like instability using the Particle-in-Cell code OSIRIS*** by modeling the laser portion where this instability is seeded and then evolves. In this proceeding, a criteria will be described that allows for the characterization of the temporal and spatial evolution of this instability.
