Plasma Physics: Fundamentals and Applications

Plasma Physics: Fundamentals and Applications. Instructor: Professor V.K. Tripathi and Professor Vijayshri, Department of Physics, IIT Delhi. The course would be a basic course in plasma physics with focus on techniques of plasma production and measurements, waves and instabilities, single particle motion in electric and magnetic fields, plasma confinement, and applications to medium and short wave communication, plasma processing of materials, laser driven fusion and magnetic fusion.
