In Physics

  • Plasma (physics), an ionized state of matter similar to a gas. Common applications include the following:
    • Plasma antenna, a type of radio antenna
    • Plasma display, a flat-panel electronic visual display technology
    • Plasma globe, a novelty item that was most popular in the 1980s
    • Plasma lamp, a type of electrodeless lamp energized by radio frequency power
    • Plasma weapon, any theoretical firearm designed to use plasma (high-energy ionized gas)
      • Plasma weapon (fiction)

Famous quotes containing the word physics:

    But this invites the occult mind,
    Cancels our physics with a sneer,
    And spatters all we knew of denouement
    Across the expedient and wicked stones.
    Karl Shapiro (b. 1913)

    The pace of science forces the pace of technique. Theoretical physics forces atomic energy on us; the successful production of the fission bomb forces upon us the manufacture of the hydrogen bomb. We do not choose our problems, we do not choose our products; we are pushed, we are forced—by what? By a system which has no purpose and goal transcending it, and which makes man its appendix.
    Erich Fromm (1900–1980)
