Laser-driven energetic electron transport in a two-layered (Au and DT) ultrahigh density plasma is investigated. It is shown that the jump in the resistivity at the interface of the two plasmas plays an important role in the slowing down of the energetic beam electrons and heating of the plasmas. Furthermore, a thin gold wire in the DT plasma can further slow down the beam electrons and absorb a part of the beam energy.
