Physics and Astronomy Colloquium

Troy Carter, UCLA  “Overview of the Basic Plasma Science Facility"

The Basic Plasma Science Facility (BaPSF) at UCLA is a US national user facility for studies of fundamental processes in magnetized plasmas. The centerpiece of the facility is the Large Plasma Device (LAPD), a 20m long, magnetized linear plasma device. This LAPD has been utilized to study a number of fundamental processes, including: collisionless shocks, dispersion and damping of kinetic and inertial Alfven waves, flux ropes and magnetic reconnection, three-wave interactions and parametric instabilities of Alfven waves, turbulence and transport and interactions of energetic ions and electrons with plasma waves.  An overview of research performed using BaPSF will be provided.
