Computer simulation explores how intense plasma waves generate suprathermal electrons, which are critical to microchip fabrication Advanced plasma-based etching is a key enabler of Moore's Law that observes that the number of transistors on integrated circuits doubles nearly every two years. It is the plasma's ability to reproduce fine patterns on silicon that makes this scaling possible and has made plasma sources ubiquitous in microchip manufacturing. A groundbreaking fabrication...

Rapid Plasma Rotation May Be Key To Softening The Blow Of Powerful Plasma Disruptions
2013-11-13 11:25:56

American Physical Society In the quest for fusion energy on earth, researchers use magnetic fields to insulate hot plasma from the walls of the chamber to maintain the reaction and prevent damage to interior surfaces. In the tokamak, a leading contender to achieve a sustained fusion burn, electrical currents flowing in the plasma inside the doughnut-shaped vacuum chamber can become unstable if the plasma current or pressure gets too high or the control system breaks, leading to a sudden...

Peter Suciu for redOrbit.com – Your Universe Online Anyone who has a plasma TV in their living room likely knows those things give off a bit of heat, but few understand why. Most of us just focus on the life-like pictures on the screen. But nowadays, the scientifically curious can take part in open online courses like those offered by Khan Academy, MIT OpenCourseWare and iTunes U to learn about the science behind how nature and technology work. And the American Physical Society reported...

Movie Of Sun's Canyon Of Fire Released By NASA
2013-10-24 14:21:52

[ Watch The Video: Canyon of Fire on the Sun ] NASA A magnetic filament of solar material erupted on the sun in late September, breaking the quiet conditions in a spectacular fashion. The 200,000 mile long filament ripped through the sun's atmosphere, the corona, leaving behind what looks like a canyon of fire. The glowing canyon traces the channel where magnetic fields held the filament aloft before the explosion.  Visualizers at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md....

Plasmas attack bacterial cells on several levels RUB researchers analyse the mechanism of action of UV photons and radicals As they destroy bacteria very efficiently, plasmas constitute an alternative to chemical disinfectants and potentially to antibiotics, as well. How they achieve this effect has been investigated by biologists, plasma physicists and chemists at the Ruhr-Universität (RUB). Cold atmospheric-pressure plasmas attack the prokaryote’s cell envelope, proteins and DNA....

Hannes Olof Gösta Alfvén (May 30, 1908 - April 2, 1995) was a Swedish plasma physicist born in Norrköping, Sweden. Alfvén 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. Alfvén 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:
