Instabilities in non-thermal plasmas

Project Details


Ambitious programme aimed at the study of a variety of instabilities driven by different distributions of energetic electrons in varying experimental geometries.
• A team with extensive expertise in experimental beam plasma systems, with wide experience in theory and computational modeling plasma.
• Enhanced understanding on the production of parasitic radiation from unintended instabilities.
• Investigation of instabilities of direct importance to magnetic and inertial fusion schemes and high power radiation generation.
