Electromagnetics and Plasma Sciences

We study the dynamics and physical properties of hot, extremely dense plasmas produced by 0.5 - 1 million ampere pulsed-power generators.  We make use of state-of-the-art electro-optical diagnostics and large-scale computer simulations in order to understand observed experimental phenomena for possible application to inertial confinement fusion energy development and to help explain astrophysical observations in distant stars and galaxies. We use radar probing of the ionosphere to understand solar-terrestrial plasma coupling dynamics.
