The temporal evolution of a wave packet in electron-beam-plasma is observed experimentally. It is shown that the packet develops on electron time scales not into self-contraction but into asymmetrical widening. Particle trapping, indicated the distribution function of electron-beam, plays an important role in causing this phenomenon.
