Plasma Processing and Processing Science
A ROLE FOR NRL
The theoretical and experimental study of basic plasma phenomena in industrially relevant plasmas will benefit from the experience of personnel with extensive knowledge of plasma physics as well as considerable insight and experience in finding and solving simple, tractable problems within a complicated system. NRL has such expertise. An opportunity exists for NRL to draw on this expertise and focus its basic research on understanding the intrinsic behavior of low-temperature plasmas.
