NPRE 526 - Plasma-Material Interactions

Last offered Spring 2023

Official Description

The course will introduce the student to fundamental concepts in plasma-materials interactions (PMI) and extend these concepts into practical methods for PMI. The course connects the concepts of surface science to irradiation-driven modification used in plasma nanosynthesis of advanced materials and PMI phenomena encountered in extreme environments (e.g. nuclear fusion, star and planetary formation, among others). The course is designed to lay the foundation of mastering selected techniques and methods for PMI. The organization of this course will: 1) prepare the student with the fundamentals aspects of plasma-surface interaction and surface science, 2) apply these fundamental concepts and expand into PMI of nanosynthesis and extreme plasma-based environments and 3) master methods and characterization techniques used in plasma-material interactions including: techniques for in-situ analysis and simulated plasma experiments. Course Information: 4 graduate hours. No professional credit.
