  1. 1. Rosetta Observations of Plasma and Dust at Comet 67P

    Author : Fredrik Leffe Johansson; Anders Eriksson; Jan-Erik Wahlund; Nicolas André; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Rosetta; Comets; Plasma; Langmuir Probes; Dust; Spacecraft-plasma interaction; Electrostatic Probes; Rosetta; kometer; plasma; stoft; rymdfarkost-plasma växelverkan; Fysik med inriktning mot rymd- och plasmafysik; Physics with specialization in Space and Plasma Physics;

    Abstract : In-situ observations of cometary plasma are not made because they are easy. The historic ESA Rosetta mission was launched in 2004 and traversed space for ten years before arriving at comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, which it studied in unprecedented detail for two years. READ MORE

  2. 2. Plasma properties in high power impulse magnetron sputtering

    Author : Daniel Lundin; Ulf Helmersson; Jon Tomas Gudmundsson; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; HiPIMS; HPPMS; plasma; plasma transport; plasma instabilities; Plasma physics; Plasmafysik;

    Abstract : The work presented in this thesis involves experimental and theoretical studies related to plasma properties in high power impulse magnetron sputtering (HiPIMS), and more specifically plasma transport. HiPIMS is an ionized PVD method based on conventional direct current magnetron sputtering (dcMS). READ MORE

  3. 3. Space Plasma Dynamics : Instabilities, Coherent Vortices and Covariant Parametrization

    Author : David Sundkvist; Jan-Erik Wahlund; Andris Vaivads; Stuart Bale; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Space and plasma physics; space physics; plasma; instabilities; turbulence; coherent structures; vortex; self-organization; magnetosphere; waves; electromagnetism; covariant; space instrumentation; Rymd- och plasmafysik; Space physics; Rymdfysik;

    Abstract : The magnetospheric cusps are two funnel-like regions of Earth's magnetosphere where solar wind plasma can have direct access to the ionosphere. The cusps are very dynamic regions where wave-particle interactions continuously take place and redistribute energy among different particle populations. READ MORE

  4. 4. Plasma Synthesis and Self-Assembly of Magnetic Nanoparticles

    Author : Sebastian Ekeroth; Ulf Helmersson; Nils Brenning; Franz Faupel; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Plasma; Synthesis; Self-Assembly; Magnetic; Nanoparticles;

    Abstract : Nanomaterials are important tools for enabling technological progress as they can provide dramatically different properties as compared to the bulk counterparts. The field of nanoparticles is one of the most investigated within nanomaterials, thanks to the existing, relatively simple, means of manufacturing. READ MORE

  5. 5. Intense laser-plasma interactions

    Author : Joel Magnusson; Chalmers tekniska högskola; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; radiation reaction; radiation generation; particle-in-cell; plasma; pair production cascades; ion acceleration; laser;

    Abstract : In the interaction of ultra-intense laser fields with matter, the target is rapidly ionized and a plasma is formed. The ability of a plasma to sustain acceleration gradients, orders of magnitude larger than achievable with conventional accelerators, has led to a great interest in laser-driven plasma-based particle and radiation sources, with applications in materials science, biology and medicine.
