Some articles on plasmas, plasma:

LULI2000
... The interaction between these focused beams and small targets produces very hot plasmas, up to many hundred million degrees, high densities and high pressures ... Depending on the laser and target parameters, these laser-generated plasmas may be compared to stars or planet interiors ... fusion and all its physical components, fundamental physics of hot and dense plasmas and its applications in astrophysics and geophysics, or the physics and processing of materials ...
Space Plasmas
... An astrophysical plasma is a plasma (an ionized gas) the physical properties of which are studied as part of astrophysics ... Much of the baryonic matter of the universe is thought to consist of plasma, a state of matter in which atoms and molecules are so hot, that they have ionized by breaking up into their ... All known astrophysical plasmas are influenced by magnetic fields ...
Plasma Etcher - Plasma Confinement
... Industrial plasma etchers often feature plasma confinement to enable repeatable etch rates, and precise spatial distributions in RF plasmas ... One method of confining plasmas is by using the properties of the Debye sheath, a near-surface layer in plasmas similar to the Double layer in other fluids ... will close off the slot and confine the plasma, while still permitting uncharged particles to pass through the slot ...
Chromo–Weibel Instability
... The Chromo–Weibel instability is a plasma instability present in homogeneous or nearly homogeneous non-abelian plasmas which possess an anisotropy in momentum space ... to the Weibel instability in electromagnetic plasmas but due to non-linear interactions present in non-abelian plasmas the late development of this instability is characterized by a turbulent cascade of ... is relevant in the understanding of the early-time dynamics of the quark-gluon plasma as produced in heavy-ion collisions ...
Columbia Non-neutral Torus - Research
... several areas of theoretical and experimental non-neutral plasma physics ... These include the equilibrium of non-neutral plasmas, transport and confinement, and ion-related instabilities ... low neutral pressures and sufficiently high magnetic field strengths, the plasmas are essentially pure electron plasmas and are macroscopically stable with confinement ...
