Laser Collision-Induced Fluorescence
Revealing the electron structures and dynamics.
To continually serve the low-temperature plasma community by providing it access to world class capabilities and expertise to enable them to further their goals and to advance plasma science.
The Sandia Low-Temperature Plasma Research Facility (PRF) offers collaborators access to cutting edge diagnostic and computational capabilities and the expertise that is needed to set up and execute experiments and analyze data generated during the collaborative endeavor. The research capabilities and expertise are applicable for studies of a large variety of low temperature plasmas in a broad range of conditions such as: transient to steady-state, low pressure collisionless to high pressure collisional, non-equilibrium to thermal, with and without applied electric and magnetic fields. These capabilities include:
Collaborations will be selected through a biannual proposal submission and review process that will be operated jointly by PPPL and SNL. Selection will consider technical merit as well as feasibility and availability of facility resources. Researchers are strongly encouraged to discuss their ideas with facility scientists prior to proposal submission. Target timeframes for proposal calls and submissions will be in January and July. Submissions will utilize a common template that can be submitted to either or both host institutions.
