Prof. Miklos Porkolab head of the Physics Research Division.

The Physics Research Division, headed by Professor Miklos Porkolab, seeks to improve our theoretical and experimental understanding of plasma physics and fusion science. This Division develops basic plasma physics experiments, new confinement concepts, novel inertial fusion diagnostics, and space plasma physics experiments, and is the home of a strong basic and applied plasma theory and computations program.

Members of the Physics Research Division, including theoretical and experimental plasma physicists, faculty members, graduate and undergraduate students and visiting collaborators, work together to better understand plasmas and to extend their uses.
