|Plasma Physics Seminar ( Phys 769)|
A short presentation explaining the decadal study of plasma science conducted by the National Research Council of the National Academies will be made. The speakers will then take questions and collect feedback from people who want to provide immediate input to the study. The particular area represented by the speakers is High Energy Density plasma physics. However, input relevant to other areas will be accepted as well. More information can be obtained below.
The Plasma 2010 committee-the decadal study of plasma science conducted by the National Research Council of the National Academies-is soliciting your input. The committee membership and task are described at the NRC web site
The next decade will be, as you are no doubt aware, a challenging and exciting one for plasma science. The study is examining the scientific achievements and opportunities in the field as a whole. The scientific scope of the study stretches from economically important industrial plasmas to the highly relativistic plasmas in astrophysics. The 1995 NRC Plasma Science Report had similar (but not identical) goals to the present study. We would, of course, welcome your opinion on any aspect of plasma science and its practice. However, we particularly would like input on the following very basic questions:
