More than 50 participants from a dozen U.S. research institutions gathered at the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) May 17-18 for the third annual meeting of the U.S. Department of Energy’s Plasma Science Center. The meeting featured papers on low-temperature plasmas, whose practical applications range from lighting to nanotechnology. Events at the session included a display of graduate student posters and a tour of PPPL.
The study of plasma, a partially-ionized gas that is electrically conductive and able to be confined within a magnetic field, and how it releases energy.
Wei-li Lee, a Principal Research Physicist in the Theory Department at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL), has received the 2011 John Dawson Prize for Numerical Simulation of Plasmas. The prize recognizes Lee for his seminal contributions to computational plasma science, specifically for his work in gyrokinetic simulations in plasma physics.
