Berkeley Lab´s lead in laser plasma acceleration research continues with new benchmarks for electron beam quality Part One: Focusing in on beam focus The rapidly evolving technology of laser plasma accelerators (LPAs) — called “table-top accelerators” because their length can be measured in centimeters instead of kilometers — promises a new breed of machines, far less expensive and with far less impact on the land and the environment than today´s...

Alan McStravick for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online The theoretical prediction of the existence of linear and nonlinear dust acoustic waves in dusty plasmas was first postulated more than two decades ago by Professor Padma Kant Shukla. Since that early prediction, these acoustic waves have been observed in several laboratory experiments. With that discovery, Professor Shukla´s discovery has transformed the field of plasma physics, even opening up a new interdisciplinary...

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. A new finding from the University of Washington could help contain and stabilize the plasma using as little as 1 percent of the energy required by current methods. “All of a sudden the current energy goes from being almost too much to almost negligible,” said lead author...

Universal Order From Chaos

[ Watch the Video: ESO Celebrates its 50th Anniversary ] Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Researchers' discovery of self-organized electromagnetic fields in counter-streaming ionized gases is paving the way for scientists to have new ways to explore how order can emerge from chaos in the universe. "We've created a model for exploring how electromagnetic fields help organize ionized gas or plasma in astrophysical settings, such as in the plasma flows that emerge...

Researchers at the Institute of Food Research have tested a new technique to ensure fresh produce is free of bacterial contamination. Plasmas are a mix of highly energetic particles created when gases are excited by an energy source. They can be used to destroy bacteria but as new research shows, some can hide from its effects in the microscopic surface structures of different foods. Eating fresh fruit and vegetables is promoted as part of a healthy lifestyle, and consumers are...

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Thermalization is the process of particles reaching thermal equilibrium through mutual interaction. We see this process around us every day. Take for example, ice cubes dropped into a pot of hot water. The cubes melt and cannot remain stable. Well-ordered ice crystals turn into a disordered liquid as the molecules of the ice and the molecules of the water reach thermal equilibrium, ending up at the same temperature. Research at the...

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:
