LPS Plasma Physics Reading Club

LPS Graduate Students create a Plasma Physics Reading Club. Each week a student volunteers to lead a discussion on a plasma physics related article (or textbook sections) of his or her choice. We hope to promote scholarship and exchange of ideas in plasma physics and also just catch up on what others have been working on in the lab. Exampls so far since the club was established are;

Field reversed configurations (review article by Tuszewski)

Thomson scattering (sections in Principles of Plasma Diagnostics textbook)

Plasma transport  (review article by Braginskii)

Axial magnetic flux separation (paper by Prof. Charles Seyler – full title: Axial magnetic flux amplification in Hall-magnetohydrodynamic simulations of externally magnetized z-pinches)
