The EPS 2019 will feature the Best Image and Video in Plasma Physics Competition that will celebrate the beauty of scientific exploration and the interlinked nature of art and science. Here follow the lists of the images and video that the EPL Prize Committee selected for the poll.
Instructions for voting will be provided.
With the advent of multi-petawatt laser systems like the ELI-Beamlines (Czech Republic), APOLLON (France) and SEL (China) the laser-driven ion accelerators will enter the acceleration regimes dominated by radiation pressure… [more]
Researchers at Berkeley Lab’s BELLA Center set a new world record in plasma-based laser-driven electron acceleration producing beams with an energy of up to 8 GeV in a 20 cm-long laser-heated discharge capillary… [more]
When ultraintense (I > 1018-19 W.cm-2) and ultrashort laser pulses interfere in the middle of a tenuous plasma, the electrons are gaining energy in the two waves by a chaotic mechanism, commonly known as stochastic heating… [more]
A plasma–dust system in the near-surface layer on the illuminated side of the Moon is shown. The system involves photoelectrons, solar-wind electrons and ions, neutrals, and charged dust grains… [more]
Edge localised modes (ELMs) are instabilities occurring in H-mode tokamak plasmas, resulting in filamentary structures that erupt violently from the plasma edge, degrading confinement and transporting heat and particles to the divertor… [more]
