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.
