Develops analytical and computational models of plasma equilibrium,
waves, instabilities, radio-frequency wave heating, turbulence and
transport for applications to toroidal magnetically confined plasmas
and controlled fusion.
Analyzes space plasma wave propagation and heating, and computes and
designs millimeter wave amplifiers and radio frequency plasma sources
for materials processing.
Administers cluster of workstations and local network interface to
NERSC supercomputers for plasma/fusion research.
Involves faculty, staff and graduate students in the Department of
Electrical and Computer Engineering, Department of Engineering Physics
and Department of Physics.
