DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY PLASMA SCIENCE CENTER

The Center for Predictive Control of Plasma Kinetics: Multi-phase and Bounded Systems is funded by a grant from the U.S. Department of Energy. The Center is enabling fundamental research on low-temperature plasmas - ionized gases with vast potential for practical technological advancements. In particular, the Center investigates techniques to customize the distributions of charged particles (electrons and ions) in these plasmas. A vast array of modern technologies, including renewable energy sources, lighting, microelectronics, and medicine, would not exist in the absence of low-temperature plasmas. The fundamental research that is being conducted at the Center could lead to more efficient solar cells, finer-featured microchips and new medical tools that cut and heal tissues with plasma-activated chemistry.

Director: Prof. Mark J. Kushner

Plasma in Our Lives Video Podcasts

The DOE Plasma Science Center is co-sponsoring a series of video podcasts produced from interviews of leading plasma scientists and engineers from around the world. They speak about their own internationally leading plasma research, new technologies that will shape our future that use plasmas and how plasmas are important to all of us every day. The videos are available on YouTube.
