Welcome to LPS

The Laboratory of Plasma Studies at Cornell University carries out a wide range of fundamental and applied research in pulsed-power-driven plasma physics including research related to inertial confinement fusion and astrophysics investigations.

This broad range is fundamental to understanding different characteristics of plasmas, from microscopic to macroscopic scales.

The integration between experiment, computation and theory is an important trait of this lab.
