An introduction to plasma physics

Plasma is one of the four fundamental states of matter, and the most abundant form of ordinary matter in the universe. It is mostly associated with stars, including the sun. As plasma physics research progresses, so does our understanding of plasma and its potential applications in society. Join Alex Schekochihin, the John Dawson Award for Excellence in Plasma Physics Research Recipient of 2019, in this talk which uncovers the exciting world of plasma physics.
