We all know that turbulence exists on Earth, but does it really exist in outer space? And if it does, how would you prove it?
Scientists are paving the way for future X-ray astrophysics research by explaining why observations from orbiting X-ray telescopes do not match theoretical predictions.
Editors from CEAG's Plasma TV Buying Guide have completed new size lists that cover the 42 inch, 50 inch, and 60 inch size plasma TVs. Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB)
Scientists from the University of Warwick and Oxford University have come up with unexpected results in an experiment with strongly heated graphite, posing a new problem for physicists working in laser-driven nuclear fusion.
An international team of scientists working at the Plasma Technology research unit at Ghent University, Belgium, has determined for the first time the absolute density of active substances called radicals found in a state of matter known as plasma, in a study about to be published in EPJ D.
Studies by Berkeley Lab scientists of electron beam quality in laser plasma accelerators include novel tests for slice-energy spread
Berkeley Lab’s lead in laser plasma acceleration research continues with new benchmarks for electron beam quality
A recent discovery has transformed the field of plasma physics, even opening up a new interdisciplinary research field that works in the overlap of condensed matter physics and astrophysics.
Researchers around the world are working on an efficient, reliable way to contain the plasma used in fusion reactors, potentially bringing down the cost of this promising but technically elusive energy source.
Hannes Olof GÃ¶sta AlfvÃ©n (May 30, 1908 - April 2, 1995) was a Swedish plasma physicist born in NorrkÃ¶ping, Sweden. AlfvÃ©n received his PhD from the University of Uppsala in 1934. His thesis was titled "Investigations of the Ultra-short Electromagnetic Waves." He was originally trained as an electrical power engineer and later moved on to research and teaching in the fields of plasma physics. AlfvÃ©n made many contributions to plasma physics, including theories describing the...
Heliopause -- The heliopause is the boundary where our Sun's solar wind is stopped by the interstellar medium. The solar wind blows a "bubble" in the interstellar medium (the rareified hydrogen and helium gas that permeates the galaxy). The point where the solar wind's strength is no longer great enough to push back the interstellar medium is known as the heliopause, and is often considered to be the outer "border" of the solar system. The distance to the heliopause is not precisely...
Solar Prominence -- Solar prominences are large arch-shaped structures observable in the solar corona. These often have a twist and occasionally become unstable, ejecting plasma and magnetic flux out from the sun. The physics of solar prominence instability is believed to be governed by magnetic forces and magnetic helicity issues. It is thought that instability occurs when a magnetic flux tube becomes excessively twisted. ----- Click here to learn more on this topic from eLibrary:
