We are studying at the Plasma Physics Laboratory at HIT low temperature plasmas, generated in direct-current and Radio-frequency discharges. The main applications here are electric propulsion for space vehicles and materials modification. I am also studying the interaction of strong magnetic fields with plasma in pulsed devices, such as plasma pinches and plasma opening switches.
