Physics Plasma/Experiments

  • Basic Plasma Science Facility (BPSF) - At UCLA, BPSF is a place to perform frontier-level experiments that require physical conditions not suitable for small devices. The facility provides an environment in which teams with complementary expertise (e.g., Laser Induced Fluorescence or High Power RF) can come together to attack problems that they would not pursue individually. The operational procedures foster the exchange of technical information across diverse areas of research (e.g., fusion studies, space investigations, laser-plasma interactions, plasma applications) in which the basic properties of plasmas play an essential role.
  • Dusty Plasma Experiments - Wave experiments and corresponding MPEG movies taken directly from the video cameras. Department of Physics and Astronomy, The University of Iowa.
  • The Low Energy Neutral Atom (LENA) Imager on the IMAGE spacecraft - LENA, one of the IMAGE spacecraft's three neutral atom imagers, will image energetic neutral atom (ENA) emissions from the ring current, inner plasma sheet, and polar ionospheric outflows.
  • Magnetic Fusion Energy Experiments - Page of the Plasma Physics Group at Los Alamos National Laboratory.
  • MAGPIE Experiment - Mega Ampere Generator for Plasma Implosion Experiments in the Plasma Physics Group at Imperial College, London. In June 1997, MAGPIE started experiments using wire array Z-pinches.
  • Maryland Centrifugal eXperiment (MCX) - An experiment at the University of Maryland, College Park, US to test the idea of Centrifugal Confinement of Plasmas for Controlled Thermonuclear Fusion.
  • National Ignition Facility (NIF) Laser - The latest in a series of high-power laser facilities used for research in inertial confinement fusion.
  • Staged Z Pinch - Description of experiments and a compact device projected to achieve break-even fusion using a pulsed electrical generator that drives current through an annular-plasma shell. Site includes schematics, technical specifications, and links to related publications.
  • Toroidal Plasma Experiments - Plasma formation and heating using radio-frequency waves, confinement and transport studies, magnetic structure studies, turbulent transport and fluctuations. Plasma Research Lab, Australian National University.
  • TRAP - An experiment at the University of Washington to study the use of accelerated FRCs for deep refueling of tokamaks.
