Plasma Phyics Experiment

The FIU Experimental Plasma Physics group is led by Professor Werner Boeglin and includes graduate students and undergraduate students. The group studies fast ion loss and plasma instabilities in collaboration with the Culham Centre for Fusion Energy in Culham, England and the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory in Princeton, New Jersey.
